Shooting for fun is just icing on the cake. My knowledge about safety and self defense is empowering. Knowing I have a better chance to live because of this is paramount!
I wanted to be a cop when I was a teen – so I took a Basic Firearms class at the San Diego Police Dept. I learned how to shoot with my first love – my Colt 1911. Later I found that trying to conceal that wasn’t going to happen, so I got a compact .45.
Fast forward, my military family moved to Virginia and just a mile from a range. Obama happened and I downsized to 9mm firearms and continued to target shoot.
Fast forward again, my husband’s job moved us to Texas. I started my own business and found out about a ladies shooting group which I became involved in. I became part of their team helping other ladies and thus became an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor and an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer (RSO).
I then found out about shooting matches and competition and thought, hey, this is great so began to embark slowly into the competition world – IDPA, USPSA and Steel Challenge.
My involvement in these sports and sharing on social media usually gets attention from my girlfriends and I have often become the go to person for questions on how to shoot, what gun to buy and etc. So, it just made sense, to get into empowering women with firearms, safety and the sports. Especially as an empty nester, a little more free time.. and hanging with girlfriends and guns – doesn’t get much better than that!

what They’re Saying
After buying a new pistol and having not gone shooting in years, I was less confident than i should be with my weapon. She slowed it down, focused on safety, watched my natural stance and made corrections while keeping me comfortable and confident. I left that session much more prepared. I cannot wait for our next training session!
