Cover girl Emily is a PhD candidate in plant biology at UT Austin, where she specializes in plant community responses to wildland fires. One of the Sure Shots’ many native New Yorkers, she made her way to Austin after hiking the length of the Appalachian Trail and catching the ‘fire bug’ while working in Mammoth Cave National Park, KY. She started shooting when she moved to Austin 2.5 years ago and has been practicing and hunting with the Sure Shots ever since.
Emily carries a Walther PPK/S .380, a ZT 0400 ST, and the infamous Snow Queen AR15.
