We are delighted to present a new coloring page girl. In this installment, created by talented artist Kimberly Kolb Eakin, we see hunter Julie McQueen in her element, and obviously having just tagged a wild turkey. Kimberly is the author of Full Metal Coloring: A Book of Down Range Reflections and features TeamWON writers in this fun series of downloadable coloring pages.
Julie McQueen is an outdoors personality, television show host, producer and outdoor writer who is well known for empowering other women and young people to nurture their love of the outdoors. Julie spends most of her time outdoors hunting, fishing, filming and producing. She uses her platform to increase awareness for habitat and wildlife preservation and conservation efforts. Julie has lived beyond her years by turning her hobbies into careers and thinking outside of the box. She worked in the fashion industry as a model for over a decade while traveling around the world, but took a couple years off to pursue a career as a professional poker player. She earned her pilot’s license when she turned 24, and has briefly owned a bakery and a model agency. Throughout the years and different career paths one thing has remained consistent: her love for the outdoors.
After working for some of the top brands in the hunting industry, she began filming hunts for television shows. Her love for hunting and fishing is public knowledge now, but for years she fought to break down the walls that kept women from entering this mostly male dominated industry. While hunting and fishing are close to her heart, she has focused much of her time and energy towards conservation efforts and educating the public about how they can help wildlife through conservation and preservation of habit. Julie has found time to earn two degrees in Psychology while running one of the most successful production companies in the outdoor industry.
