What do I hope to gain from this group?

To help others, meet strong women, have more opportunities to shoot and to have fun!

What are your hobbies?

Writing, basketball, handcycle road racing, taekwondo, powerlifting competition, my cats and anything challenging. I love breaking down barriers!

Do you have any shooting experience and have you ever had a self defense class?

I've taught self-defense (3rd degree black belt) and have been shooting for decades more on than off... and have competed up to the Paralympic level as the top female shooter in the U.S. in air rifle (also was referred to a winter Olympic biathlon coach as a teenager). Have shot AR15, M16, Uzi, semi-auto and much more such as shot/trap. Have been shooting nationally since age 15 in revolver, then internationally in .22 and .177 air rifle events and was an expert marksman in the Air Force. I'm a precision shooter mostly but love trying anything new and fun! I'd really like to get more experience in semi-auto/automatic handguns and high powered rifles. I'm most comfortable with revolver, .22 and air rifle currently-- the rest has been way too long ago and I'm rustier than any gun I've every cleaned. Oh-- and I only shoot paper and non-living stuff (couldn't kill anything other than in self-defense or defense of others-- but then watch out!).


Hello: I'm Lisa and have been shooting competitively for over three decades, having served in both law enforcement and then the Air Force. More importantly, I love seeing women empowered! I hope to join you and love that this group was formed.
