The National Outdoor Women organization was founded on January 25, 2005 by Sharon Prus. As an avid outdoors person for over 20 years and with her passion for the outdoors and meeting new people, it was an easy decision to start her own organization.
Sharon has been involved in various volunteer organizations such as United Way, Rotary, Business & Education Partnerships and was the Charter President for the White Lake Optimist Charter.
Sharon was also the Charter President for the National Wild Turkey Federation Dune Drummers Chapter in 1995, making her the first NWTF female Chapter President in the State of Michigan.
Sharon shares her passion for the outdoors with her two sons, Kris & Joe. Both boys began their outdoor adventures when they were toddlers and are still very active in the outdoors and share many memories with their mother.
Sharing the outdoor knowledge with women from all walks of life, through the National Outdoor women events, seminars and private lessons, has been her dream or a long time. “It’s an awesome feeling watching a woman try something new and get so excited when she does more than she thought she could! Being an outdoor woman doesn’t mean just hunting or fishing, but experiencing everything the outdoors has to offer!”
