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, Montana, where she quickly realized she would have to learn how to fly-fish, or risk being kicked out of the state. She graduated from the University of Montana in 2014 with a degree in Journalism and now spends her time with 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 that organization. She can usually be found on Rock Creek or the Bitterroot River, desperately trying to become a better fly-fisher.
