In 2012 at the Bay Mills AIM Can-Am Pro Tournament she finished a strong 2nd and made history as the highest placing female competing against all males in a Pro-AM format.Later that year with the most points earned throughout the season she won the “Angler of the Year” title and making history again as the 1st woman to compete against an all male field and win this title.As in the beginning on the waters with her mentor, her grandfather it was the highlight of her carrier to win this prestigious “Angler of the Year” award on August 18, 2012.
