Throughout her lifetime, Jen has enjoyed Ontario’s outdoors through fishing, hunting, canoeing, camping and ATVing. Growing up, her first fishing buddy was her father and they spent many weekends fishing in the Kawarthas ~ both open water and on the ice.
Jen joined the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters about 13 years ago after attending her first Women's Outdoor Weekend. This re-ignited her love for the outdoors and got her interested in hunting as well. In 2015, she attended the Women's Outdoor Weekend as an archery instructor.
As a long time member of the Girl Guides, Jen has mentored youth and adults in various outdoor activities including fishing and lure making. She enjoys watching first time anglers catching their first fish, no matter how big or small.
