What caliber do you prefer: .22 for plinking, 9mm for self defense

Special Certifications in shooting: NRA Certified Range Safety Officer and Basic Pistol Course

What made you want to start shooting: I wanted to be comfortable and confident should the need arise to protect myself.

What you like the best about shooting: The ability to challenge myself

What made you want to get involved in Sisters of the Second Amendment (S2A): I was so excited when I found a local organization of ladies who enjoy shooting in a safe environment while enjoying each others company.

What do you want other ladies to know about S2A:  No matter your age or skill level, our group will welcome you and help you feel comfortable using a firearm.

Why do you think women specific clubs like this are important: We are a professional group of women who like to have fun, shoot safely and always have a calendar full of upcoming events. I feel this is so important in a digital world where so many people hide behind their electronic devices and don't actually engage in personal interaction with others anymore. Our club keeps things exciting and motivated for the future.

Any other hobbies/talents outside of shooting: Kayaking, fishing, camping, fostering  and helping local dog rescue's.
