Kamilia (Kami) Elsisie of Albuquerque enjoys working to preserve public lands, water and wildlife for future generations. Kami was born in Wyoming but grew up mostly in New Mexico. Her passion for the outdoors was sparked by early experiences including rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, pack trips in the Gila Wilderness and fishing and canoeing in the Arctic Circle in Alaska.
Kami identifies as an "adult onset hunter" seeing that she went on her first waterfowl hunt almost six years ago, and that's all it took for her to fall in love with hunting. Since then, she has hunted big game and birds across the West, all on public land. Her hunting has increased her interest in conservation, education and public policy. Kami is the Central New Mexico Artemis Ambassador and works as the Communications and Outreach Coordinator for the New Mexico Wildlife Federation.
She currently works as a Paramedic in the Emergency Department and her educational credentials include a Master of Public Health from San Jose State University and a Bachelors in Community Health from New Mexico State University.
