Board of Directors
Sandy Froman, President
Harvard-educated attorney, former law professor, past president of the National Rifle Association, and former president of Wildlife for Tomorrow (a non-profit foundation supporting the Arizona Game & Fish Department’s conservation and education efforts), Sandy Froman has done much for the cause of wildlife conservation and the shooting sports. Sandy grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area suburbs but never camped, hunted or fished as a child. Yet somehow the die was cast. While her grade school classmates were flying balsa wood kites, she crafted bows and arrows from the wood and honed her archery skills hunting tomatoes in her mother’s garden. It was there she learned her first hunting lesson–you eat what you hunt. Sandy received her undergraduate degree in economics with honors from Stanford University and her juris doctor degree from Harvard Law School. As a long time director and the current President of Mzuri Wildlife Foundation, Sandy believes the Foundation’s work is vital to preserving America’s hunting heritage which, in turn, ensures sustainable wild habitat and healthy animal populations. She has seen firsthand the economic benefits of managed big game hunting in the US and abroad. Having herself been introduced to hunting by a female mentor, Sandy works to grow the number of women participating in the shooting and hunting sports. Sandy lives in the saguaro-studded mountains north of Tucson, Arizona among visiting scorpions, rattlesnakes, javelina, whitetails, bobcats, and an occasional mountain lion, some of which have tried to hunt her.

He joined Mzuri to make a difference in the best way possible. In his words, “I’ve been involved in Mzuri for many years because of the hands-on projects they support.
