Bio: With a focus not only on the performance of the athlete on the shooting line, but in their overall wellbeing – Kirsten’s coaching philosophy is based in maintaining a strong positive relationship with athletes and their families.
Kirsten’s archery career began in an archery class at Texas A&M. While at A&M she was a member of the collegiate team as they defended their national title all 4 years. Since leaving A&M Kirsten shot recurve on the state and national level, competing in several USAT Qualifiers (USA Team qualifying events) before her career was interrupted by reconstructive shoulder surgery. Although the surgery was related to her individual physiology, she has since grown her focus on the biomechanics of shooting and techniques to adapt to each individual archer to prevent injuries. Kirsten has also heavily studied mental management practices on multiple levels and from several aspects.
Outside of the range Kirsten is the event coordinator for an arena in Allen, TX. Due to the nature of live events her schedule varies greatly, if you are interested in private lessons please email email@example.com to find the most convenient time availability.
