Contact me for: RBFF is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase participation in recreational angling and boating, thereby protecting and restoring the nation’s aquatic natural resources. RBFF developed the award-winning Take Me Fishing™ campaign to create awareness around boating, fishing and conservation, and educate people about the benefits of participation. Take Me Fishing helps boaters and anglers of all ages and experience levels learn, plan and equip for a day on the water. The campaign website, TakeMeFishing.org, features tips and how-to’s that can be used all over the country, tools to compare different styles of boats, information on how to get a fishing license and boat registration, and an interactive state-by-state map that allows visitors to find local boating and fishing spots.

Living in the south, she grew up spending summers at the beach and after college promptly relocated to the coastal town of Charleston, SC, where she worked for the South Carolina Aquarium. She loves being out on the water boating and fishing with family and friends and is now teaching her little nephews to fish as well.

She received a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Georgia.
