I am 41 years old and absolutely love encouraging and empowering women to be more comfortable and confident handling Firearms. I grew up shooting and was taught the importance of firearms safety at an early age. A few years after my divorce I was shooting with a friend and realized my whole life I had been handed loaded Firearms and I handed them back empty. Also, anytime I had a malfunction I handed it over to get it cleared. I decided that I needed training and lots of practice! I’m a pretty independent person and was determined to be able to do it on my own. I was told about a Ladies Shooting class 30 minutes from home so I decided to give it a try! I went to my first class almost 4 years ago and never turned back! I was taught fundamentals and safety in a super fun and educational environment by a very knowledgeable women who became my friend. I eventually got certified as the Range Safety Office then the Co-leader of the chapter. I knew the next step in my journey was getting NRA certified to teach so share that fun and relaxed environment with other women . My friend introduced me to Shoot Like a Girl and I fell in Love with the job. What I enjoy the most about working with all these amazing women is hearing their stories and seeing their faces light up from excitement when they hit that target!!
I enjoy going to the range with my friends but that usually leads to wanting more guns! I have competed in a few steel challenges and bowling pin matches and hope to do more in the future. I have never really been a hunter but I am looking forward to taking advantage of some opportunities that are coming up. I am fortunate to have friends with the same interest and love spending every minute with I can with them.
