Because my dad has been a police officer for over 20 years, I was exposed to firearms early on in my life. My curiosity began to grow about his firearms at the age of 7, so Dad started teaching me on a CO2 BB gun. I quickly started moving up into the 22 calibers and owned my first pistol at the age of 10. I have my own AR-15 rifle and just added a new Kimber 45 Eclipse Custom II to my collection of firearms. My collection of firearms may be small but I have had the privilege to shoot many different styles and calibers over the years. My dad was an instructor with different law enforcement agencies and he always taking training with various other instructors from FBI, Navy Seals and so on...fortunately for me he passed much of that training knowledge down to me over the years. I am planning on taking the CHL Instructor course through the state and want to continue my training by competitions, training courses, and learning from my fellow AG & AG Facilitators. My passion is to grow the world of female shooters and to help build a world class shooting organization.
Although I just started shooting close to three years ago, I have found a passion for wanting to learn more about firearms. I have enjoyed training to become more proficient, and teaching other women the knowledge I have gained in my training. I currently have my CHL and I am a NRA Certified Pistol Instructor. Here in the near future I will be taking the CHL Instructor course through the Texas DPS and obtain my NRA RSO Certification.
