Emily Degan grew up duck hunting with her dad in southeastern Louisiana. From a young age, she noticed the gender disparity among hunters, which became especially obvious when she wanted to buy hunting gear but was unable to find suitable products for women.
After graduating from the University of Notre Dame and gaining business experience at Deloitte, Emily took it upon herself to change that, and in 2016, she founded Saint Hugh, a women's hunting and outdoor leisure apparel clothing company.
She and her goldendoodle, Winnie, live in New Orleans where Saint Hugh is headquartered.
