Tell us about yourself and what you do
My name is Alee Vestal-Laborde, nationally ranked archer and Instagrammer (@bakedfish). My love for archery began at a very young age, after graduating from school, I decided to buy a bow. Though most people interested in archery typically seek out a compound bow as a hobby, I quickly became increasingly interested in Olympic recurve archery.
How do you spend your time?
I spend most of my time touring and competing. In my spare time, I do what I can to advocate for the sport, and I hope to build a local competitive archery culture.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
I’m the top recurve archer in Louisiana. As far as I know, I’m the only female recurve archer in Louisiana.
