Ashley Praus attended her local Delta Waterfowl event in Bismarck, North Dakota, for years before joining the organization as a full-time employee. A graduate of Bismarck State College with a degree in graphic design and communications, Praus’ creative skills deliver visually appealing marketing pieces and an engaging website.

“I love that technology and social media are constantly changing,” Praus said. “I learn something new almost every day.”

A waterfowler, Praus also enjoys fishing and camping with her husband, friends and black Lab, Achilles, and German shepherd, Rena. However, archery hunting is her favorite pasttime.

“It’s such an incredible rush sitting in a treestand watching deer come in only 20 yards from you,” she said.
