Diversity & Social Media Liaison

Angelica’s passion for traditional fishing began at an early age.  It wasn’t until her twelve year old daughter Ella asked her to go fly fishing that she began fly-fishing and learning more about the sport. 

Angelica is the founder of two successful lifestyle blogs.  She is a source for inspiration, covering everything from travel and fitness to parenting, attainable luxury and style, home decor and more.  

Angelica’s other passion is establishing connection and creating community.

Not having seen many women of color represented in the fly fishing world, Angelica is doing her part to change that.  “Growing up in a small town in Northwest Ohio, I was surrounded by people that didn’t look like me and subsequently feel like representation is essential to everyone.  Now more than ever, girls are influenced by so many social factors and shouldn’t feel under-represented in areas of interest.  Especially activities that are meant to be enjoyable and open to anyone.”

I want everyone to see themselves represented in fly fishing, and I’d love to create more of a community where all women and young girls can feel welcomed.

Angelica has been published in Dun Magazine, Arlington Magazine and has been featured on several Washington, D.C. television news channels as a regular correspondent and travel expert.
