Congratulations to NRA Women contributor Serena Juchnowski on the announcement that she is the newest member of Team Sierra. Juchnowski, who wrote her very first article for NRAFamily.org in 2014, herself became the subject of an NRAFamily.org “Rising Stars” column in 2018. Juchnowski joined the NRAWomen.com team in 2020. If you aren't familiar with her writing, please search for her byline on our site. Juchnowski still resides in Ohio, working as a freelance outdoor writer, photographer, content creator and marketer.
Juchnowski’s lengthy shooting resume includes competing in High Power Service Rifle and Long Range Palma. She earned her Distinguished Rifleman’s Badge before age 21, and also earned the Palma Junior Achievement Award. She is a member of the USA Young Eagles developmental team, which represents the United States in long-range matches worldwide. She is also a columnist for American Handgunner magazine, and has published more 75 articles to date.
Her favorite advice for new shooters? “Focus on your journey and do not compare yourself to other shooters. Shooting is about improving, learning, and having fun (and firearm safety of course). At the end of the day, you are only competing against yourself. A score cannot measure what you and your soul gained from the experience.”
Congratulations, Serena! We’re glad to be among those who can say, “We knew her when!”
