"Ain’t nothing like a woman Southern born and bred!"

Jessica “Jess” Bartlinski is the winner of November’s “Outdoor Diva of the Month” contest sponsored by Strung Out Clothing (www.strungoutclothing.com) after receiving 72% of 10,000 votes cast at www.WoodsnWater.net.

“Southern drawl with dark tan legs, ain’t nothing like a woman Southern born and bred!” says the 27-year-old nursing student who plans to work as an ER nurse after she graduates in March.

The self-described “adrenaline junkie” is a true GRITS (Girl Raised In The South) from Seminole and Lake County and lives for “anything that gets my blood pumping, whether its skydiving, bungie jumping or cliff jumping!” Jess also loves everything outdoors from fresh and saltwater fishing and lobstering to hunting, camping, surfing and horseback riding.

“I love to get down and dirty, 4-wheeling or muddin’,” Jess said, adding, “My dad nicknamed me Annie Oakley at a very young age, because I was just a natural shot with any gun I picked up. Most evenings or weekends you can find my husband and I on the lake or ICW wettin’ our lines or in the woods scouting or checking our trail cams.

If I’m not in the woods or on the water, I’m usually working different mud events on the BuckedUp Rig!” she said. Jess will receive $50 in merchandise from www.strungoutclothing.com.
