Kiley’s passion is truly Africa. This started with her first trip to Africa more than 18 years ago on a hunting expedition she was invited on. Her first step in Africa and she knew she would be back. Kiley grew up in a long-time hunting-fishing outdoor family. She was a true “daddy’s girl” he never left without her and if he wasn’t hunting and fishing he was working so he could hunt and fish. Really this must be where it all started. Her travels have taken her too many hunting areas and camps. In fact she feels she has visited more hunting camps then most Professional Hunters. She feels this is a big advantage in helping her to know what her clients are looking for during their safari in Africa. Kiley’s hobbies include cooking, entertaining and anything to do with the great outdoors. She also believes in helping the communities in which she lives and travels; whether that be USA, Mexico, or Southern Africa. Please see the page on Community Projects that Africa Sport Hunting Safaris sponsors.

He truly hunts hard for his clients and always has their best interest at heart.
