Welcome to the Defensive Empowerment Academy!
My mission is to provide students of all ages and genders strategies to empower themselves to be their own self-protectors. I focus on various aspects of personal protection throughout the courses I offer. In the DEAcademy I cover everything from situational awareness to non lethal products such as stun guns, pepper spray and kubatons to lethal products such as firearms. What ever your comfort level is, is where we begin our journey of self protection together.
I am a State Leader of The Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapters for Florida as well as a dual chapter leader instructor for both Port Richey, Florida and North Tampa, Florida. I am a graduate of the Tampa Police Citizens Academy, Pasco County Sheriff's Office Citizens Academy and the FBI Citizen Academy.
Outside of the world of personal protection, I am a financial professional. I am also a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters as well as the chair of the Pasco County Leadership Council for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. In 2018, I was named the Big Sister of the Year.
I look forward to working with you on your personal protection journey.
