Empowering Your Learning Journey with Giulia Stoddard

My name is Giulia Stoddard and I am a certified Canadian Firearms Instructor and an Alberta Hunter's Education Instructor since 2006. I specialize in the conservation and education aspect of hunting in Alberta. My passion for hunting has been passed down to me from my family and has been shared with my husband and our daughters. My desire to learn excelled me into wanting to teach and share my knowledge about my outdoor enthusiasm with others. I hunt with a rifle as well as a bow and love to inspire people of all ages to try and hunt with both. Because of this passion, I have furthered my knowledge and expertise in becoming a certified Canadian Firearms Instructor, teaching others both the non restricted and restricted courses.
