Like my siblings, I started shooting at 2 years old and shot fita field tournaments all over Europe by 7. I have shot on 4 continents and won 3 world field titles including barebow and sight. I currently share the 3 world barebow records with my two sisters. Our family is very involved in sports, music and scholastics. I have a passion for violin, running, softball, golf, travel, fishing, my studies and church. In the fita world field in Wales 2008, my entire family of 6 made the US team and Heather and I played our colors live during the gold medal ceremonies: what a memory! Like my 3 siblings, I aspire to continually improve under Coach Lee’s KSL method and strike gold for America in a future Olympic Games.
