My history with shooting started in 1982 when I bought my first handgun not long after my son was born. I lived in a not so savory neighborhood, my husband worked nights and I needed to protect my new family. I joined The Well Armed Woman in July 2013 and became an instructor in October 2014. I continue to add to my instructor courses to better myself and to be able to teach more varied courses. I firmly believe you never need to stop learning. Living in the Nashville area, there weren't any ranges that taught a women's only class, so I hope to fill that gap. I have a passion to help anyone with becoming proficient and comfortable with firearms, but especially women.
