My interest in shooting and firearms safety began at a very early age. As a WWII vet and NYPD my dad felt it imperative that I learn to respect and understand the capabilities of firearms.
Shooting, then later hunting became a lifelong passion taking us to Africa, Europe, South and Central America, Canada and coast to coast across our great country.
I enjoy shooting and reloading for all types of firearms and calibers. I am an NRA RSO, NRA certified Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Personal Protection in the Home and Muzzleloading Instructor.
I am passionate about teaching and passing on our firearms, hunting and 2nd Amendment heritage to our youth as they are the future of our sport.
I am especially proud to be part of a group whose primary focus is the continued improvement of our Club, the commitment to Safety and support of the MCSA Members.
I especially enjoy my time as an RSO. It affords me the opportunity to meet more and more fellow members. Some of the Best people I have met are those who share our passion for the Shooting Sports and Outdoors.
While living in NH; I worked as a real estate broker. My property listings were primarily foreclosures. When taking a listing for a foreclosed property, my first assignment is to determine whether the property is vacant or still occupied. About 50% of the time they were still occupied by the former owner. Vacant properties were still full of personal belongings. A few were drug houses or meth labs. I learned to be very careful of needles. The last straw was when I had a pit bull charge me (he was guarding one of the meth houses). I decided that it was time to carry a firearm with me for self defense. I was fortunate to be directed to a women’s group, Women’s Defense League of NH. It was there I learned safety, how to shoot, what gun was right for me and so much more!! I looked forward to every monthly event the group offered. Especially enjoyed the friendships gained.
I became a Certified NRA Basic Pistol Instructor and a NRA Certified Range Safety Officer. I was also asked to joined the Board of Directors; Director of Education for the Women’s Defense League of NH. I learned so much and would like to share my knowledge with other women who want to know more.
I'm a 3rd generation martin county resident. I've been a hunter and a competitive shooter the majority of my life. I am a MOS small arms instructor. I’m a certified level one IPSC range officer and a life member of IPSC and NRA. I participate in many different shooting disciplines and reload ammo to support that. I first joined MCSA in the late 70s. I'm one of the members that helped in the beginning development of our range.
