Heidi was born in Williams Lake, Canada and moved to the United States as a child.
She spent her youth fishing all along the rivers of America’s northwest.
When Heidi was 18 she joined the United States Air Force (USAF). The USAF is what ultimately brought Heidi to Alaska after being stationed in the Middle East.
During her career, she served with some of the most remarkable men and women that our nation has the privilege to call the United States military. However, she was thrilled to trade sand for streams.
Heidi’s guiding season is from May until October in Bristol Bay, Alaska. In the winter time, she lives in Wasilla, Alaska with her family.
Her winter months are filled with running “Wild on the Fly,” a custom fly rod studio which builds functional, hand crafted fly rods for avid anglers.
Additionally, Heidi is on the board of many philanthropic and socially responsible endeavors striving to enrich her community.
Heidi works with her local Trout Unlimited chapter on legislation for environmental projects to keep the waters clean for generations to come.
