Kendra Cousineau was born in Wenatchee, Washington. Her love for the outdoors originated with her father taking her out fishing and hunting from a young age. In 2003, Kendra moved to Missoula, MT where she quickly realized she would have to learn how to fly-fish, or risk being kicked out of Montana. She graduated from the University of Montana in 2014 with a degree in Journalism.
Throughout college, she volunteered for XSPORTS4VETS, a local non-profit organization that takes combat veterans on whitewater rafting trips and hang-gliding trips; just to name a few.
In 2018, she received a degree in Licensed Addiction Counseling through MSU online.
From 2016-2020 she helped run a Facebook and Instagram page for “Missoula Fly Gals”, a local group that gears to get more women on the water. In 2020, she helped organize an “Orvis 50/50 On the Water” film festival.
Kendra currently resides in Missoula, MT with her two cats, Remington and Fish. She is a member of the Westslope Chapter of Trout Unlimited and volunteers as much time as she can with them.
When she isn’t working, you can usually find her on Rock Creek or the Bitterroot River, desperately trying to become a better fly-fisher.
