Reflecting back on her childhood as a young girl, Shyanne never had much interest in the hobbies that most girls participated in. Instead, she would spend hours roaming the thick, Michigan woods behind her small mobile home - only coming back when it was too dark to see. With generations of passionate anglers in her family, she remembers being a young girl with a fish in one hand and a barbie rod in the other. Shyanne likes to think the heritage and passion for fishing runs through her blood.

What do you do to create balance in your life?

Self care is pivotal. Stepping back and truly being present in the moment.

What inspiration do you find in the outdoors or what motivates you to get outside?

Being outside, whether hiking, fishing, snowboarding is the calm to the chaos. It's where I feel most alive, refreshed and when i'm my best self. It's my own version of meditation.

What does Let The Outside In mean to you?

Let The Outside In is a perfect reminder to me to let the elements of exploring nature consume me completely. That whenever i'm outside, doing the things I'm passionate about i'm completely present in that moment.

How can you inspire others to Let The Outside In?

Share your passion with others. Whether i'm on the river or on the mountain. Seeing someone else experience something new, is my greatest happiness.
