As a mother 0f 3 and grandmother to 5, my main
priority is to keep my family safe.
In the year of 2019 my youngest daughter and I lived in the state of Arizona where there was an attempt to "traffic" her in the form of coercion. Being the former wife of a police officer, I had some familiarity with handguns and decided I needed to pick up this skill in order to further protect my family. I took classes, trained and learned everything I could about self-defense with handguns. During these courses, classes and personal trainings, I had amazing instructors but none of them were female.
As my passion and knowledge grew it was time to be the change I wanted to see, a female instructor whose mission is to provide a safe place where you can come to learn, grow and evolve through the fundamentals of firearm safety and self- defense, develop a defensive mindset, and overcome firearm related fears while building confidence and competence in claiming your rights to be your families immediate responder, should the need arise.
Empowered Personal Protection (EPP) was founded based on a need for family preservation and to provide training for people who were purchasing firearms and/or interested in firearms training.
My certifications include Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals, Emergency First Aid Fundamentals. Women's Handgun & Self-Defense Fundamentals, Marksmanship, Countering the Mass Shooter Threat, Children's Firearms & Safety Fundamentals. Additionally, I am Women's Empowerment and Holistic Life Coach, Entrepreneurship and Business Coach, Human Rights Consultant, Anti Human Trafficking Consultant.
I facilitate the Dayton Ohio Chapter of A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League, a ladies-only organization established by women shooters for women pistol, rifle, and shotgun shooters! The league is designed to take beginners to whatever skill level they wish to achieve and provide experienced shooters with more opportunities.
