I truly believe that knowledge is power. Before I was introduced to firearms, I had an unreasonable fear of them.  My knowledge of firearms, at the time, was non-existent until my step dad taught me how to shoot. Ever since then, I have made it my goal to learn as much as I can.  After many years of shooting, I decided to bring the knowledge I've obtain to others.
I am now a co-leader for The Well Armed Woman - Sacramento Chapter and an NRA Certified instructor and Chief Range Safety Officer.  I provide basic pistol & marksmanship classes, 1 on 1 instruction, and private group classes.  It is my goal to help new and experienced shooters feel more confident in themselves to continue in their training as as they gain the knowledge and the skills to become a safe and responsible gun owner.
