A transplant from New York since 2016, I happily reside in Montana working part-time as the Lead Female Firearms Instructor at Montana Tactical Firearms Instruction. My position as the pistol licensing clerk back east is what sparked my interest in guns. My personal contribution to the shooting industry began in 2012 when I founded the first-ever Women's Concealed Carry Holster Fashion Show in New York, which has since become a national event. My purpose was to draw women in to educate them using the runway as my "draw" demonstrating a variety of holsters and carry options along with other options for personal protection and the legal ramifications if "Use of Force" was necessary to protect oneself. I have earned many certificates or "badges" and training over the past 10 years to qualify me to coach students in basic, intermediate, and advanced handgun classes and concealed carry. I have designed a curriculum to meet the needs of, primarily, women who like to train at a different pace than some classes out there. It is by no means "slower", just a little different with a little more concentration on the process to get to where we want to be. I encourage all of my students to train before they carry and I enjoy helping them achieve that goal.
