I love teaching and empowering women with the tools they can use to stay safe. I have over twenty-seven years of Martial Arts experience and about seven years as a firearm instructor, although I have been around firearms most of my life.
My passion has always been helping others to stay safe.
In my twenties I began teaching karate classes while continuing to take classes myself.
Now I continue sharing my passion to self-protect by teaching self-defense classes and firearm classes in Oklahoma. As a Martial Arts and firearms instructor, I feel you are first a student and should always be taking classes to better your skills to pass along to others. That is why I also teach classes in firearms, self-defense and Carry Classes. I am also the State and Chapter leader of The Well Armed Woman in the Oklahoma City area.
I am truly blessed to have been with Shoot Like A Girl for about four years now. I love being able to work with so many women in the trailer. It is truly the best experience as an instructor to have the honor of working with so many different types of personalities. Some are outgoing, some shy, others excited to come in, and others may be reluctant due to fears they have. I have to say, the majority of the ladies are always thrilled that they came in, and the smiles and high fives are typically what we see as they leave. There are so many ladies that stand out who we’ve helped, but I will tell you about one. When I asked her if she would like to shoot with us, she told me she couldn’t because she has very high anxiety. After talking with her for a bit, I finally was able to get her to come inside to shoot. As I walked her through the firearm side and then the rifle side.
I could see her anxiety be overtaken by joy and pride in herself and her accomplishments.
She was able to shoot and have a great score as well. Her husband was gleaming as he watched his wife’s excitement. There are so many ladies just like her that we get to work with. It is pure joy to watch all these ladies overcoming their fears.
