I learned the love of outdoors as a young child growing up in Mars, Pennsylvania. My family had a fishing camp on the shores of Pymatuming Lake, and I could often be found fishing the shallows. To this day I go fishing anytime and anyplace I can.
No one in my family at that time hunted, so I learned about hunting by reading every book and magazine I could get my hands on. It was refreshing when I married Dale that he was a hunter and fisherman. We now do our hunts and fishing trips together and with our family . We currently have 4 children; Shannon, Leann and Kaitlyn and Cy who are both adopted. We lost our son Mathew in a boating accident 15 years ago, he died trying to save his friend from drowning. We also have 5 grandchildren; Sarah, Ryan, Caleb, Eliana and Madison.
I work for Hassinger Construction as the office manager, and for Egreen Corporation as their Payroll/HR Administrator. Both jobs are rather flexible allowing me to indulge myself with hunting/fishing trips as needed.
I have hunted and fished some of the most beautiful places on the world: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for Marlin, Tuna and dorado; Alaska for 5 species of salmon, halibut and ling cod; New York for salmon and brown trout; Florida for sail fish, tarpon, bass, dolphin fish, barracuda, alligator and hogs; Illinois for whitetail deer; Alabama for whitetail deer, quail and hogs; Maine for moose and bear; North Carolina for quail; Costa Rica for tarpon; Virginia off shore fishing; Anticosti Island, Quebec, Canada for whitetail deer, Nunavik, Quebec, Canada for Caribou and Ptarmigan; Ontario, Canada for fresh water fish and Pennsylvania for everything!
While I prefer my compound bow for hunting, I had a bout with breast cancer 2 ½ years ago that resulted in me having a bilateral mastectomy. They also removed some lymph nodes to check for the spread of cancer. Following my surgery, no one could answer whether I would ever be able to fish, bow hunt, or shoot shotguns and rifles again. No one had ever asked these questions of my doctors, I was the first! I am delighted to prove to everyone, that not only is it possible, but you can still be successful as well! I am still building up the muscles that were destroyed in the surgery, so for now I hunt with a crossbow with a handicap designation, as well as my rifles and shotguns. We all have scars that have made us the people we are, emotional or physical the scars are a reminder of your strength. I am proud to not only say I am a cancer survivor, but I am enjoying life! Everyone should get out and do what they love every opportunity they can. “Love the Life you Live, Live the Life you Love” (Bob Marley)
