About me 
I learned about fishing from my grandfather as a little girl in upstate NY. Took up fly fishing in 2006, and there’s been no looking back since. Graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelors degree in Biology, and has a Masters in Business from Nazareth College. I currently work full time as an Information Technology Manager at Eastman Kodak Company where I have worked for 33 years. Each year, I volunteer teaching TU Women Fly Fishing seminars in the NYS area. Over the past 9 years I've taught a over 250 women to learn how to fly fish in central NY with various NY TU Chapters. I volunteered and guide both male & female Vets as part of the Project Healing Waters (PHW) rehabilitation program for the past 6 years. My husband Dave & I currently are the fly fishing program coordinator's for the OASIS Adaptive Sports, Inc which supports disabled military veterans in a variety of sports activities. I currently serves as chair of Women's initiatives Committee by the NY TU State Council. I service on the Board of Trustees at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum here in NYS.
