The honor of being nominated as one of the twelve finalists for the 2012 Prois Hunting Award will absolutely and always remain one of the highlights of my adult life. I would like to thank Prois, each judge, each and every single person that cast their vote for me, with all my heart.

The amazing women I have had the opportunity to meet and get to know during the voting period are certainly some of the most outstanding outdoors people I have ever met.

Delightful and inspiring, both as women and professional hunters, each one are a source of amazing adventures and astonishing wisdom that they are more than willing to share.

Thank you. Thank you for the opportunity and the wild ride that came with that opportunity. Thank you for believing in me. Although I did not, win the 2012 Prois Hunting Award, I feel that I won so much more in each person I met through the process and experience, and I wanted you to know that.

Winning in the Alaska WildernessKnow this, each one of you that did vote for me; I will not stray from the path laid out ahead. I am looking forward to sharing all I can with as many people that I can reach.

I will continue to share our lives in the wilderness of Alaska and strive to be all we wish to see and be in the wild outdoors. I will continue to learn and teach women and young people all I know of the outdoors, survival and wildlife as well as to be an example of ethical behavior and hunting and an inspiration to anyone who dreams of nature and of the wild.
