I was born into a dynamic archery family who has traveled the world in search of competition at its highest level. My mom and dad – world bb champions and US National Team members themselves – introduced shooting to each of the 4 of us at 2 years old. I have shot world championships on 4 continents including two world barebow junior titles with resultant world bb records. We have lived around the world including living in Hungary for 6 years which allowed us to shoot fita field shoots 10+ times every summer. We have close archery friends world wide and world champs are always exciting when we meet up with foreign archery friends. I changed over to sight shooting and target archery in December 2008 under Coach Lee’s watchful eye. Like my 3 siblings, I aspire to win gold in a future Olympic Games. My family is very close knit and as a family, we enjoy not only archery but boating, fishing, golf, softball, travel and music (violin).
