Was introduced to the shotgun sports by her dad after attending local matches with him during Wednesday night league.  Her requests to shoot with them finally happened at the age of eight, and she's been hooked ever since.  First was involved in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and got her introduction to international trap during her 7th grade year. 

Her pre-match routine includes finding the right song to sing to during her round as she'll often be seen singing her way through a match.  Her rising success is all the more surprising considering she's only able to train one day a week currently given her Southern California roots and the lack of range availability and the 2-3 hour distance to the nearest range.
