When COVID hit and riots broke out all over the country, it was time to rise up. I did what I'm best at and brought women together to empower them in the face of fear.
It started with a Facebook community, then I was getting frequent requests to help women go to the range and shoot for the first time. Lessons quickly became an in-demand service, followed by classroom instruction and the rest is history. I am deeply proud to be part of arming women to protect themselves and their families.
