Writer, Editor & Co-Host
I’m a 28-year- old competitive shooter, but I didn’t start out as a shooter. My passion for competition began years ago. I was a volleyball player; I played for Newberry College, a Division II college in a small town in South Carolina. After college, I went to Durham, England to play volleyball for Durham University. When I returned to the states I hung up my playing shoes and I started coaching. Coaching was the closest I could get back into to the sport, and the opportunity to teach others the sport I love was something I could not pass up.
My interests started to change after I married my police officer husband, Heath. His hobbies were shooting, shooting, and shooting. So, I ventured with him to a few of his matches. While attending these matches I saw the competiveness and comradery I had been missing. I knew I wanted to give it a shot, and Heath was more than willing to help me get started.
I started my competitive shooting journey in February 2014. I had signed up for the Brownells Lady 3 Gun Pro-Am Challenge in hopes that it would hold me accountable to train for 3 Gun. I started training with my husband and then I took a class with Kay and Lena Miculek for 3 Gun beginners and I was hooked. Since then, I have been competing in local monthly matches and major matches throughout the southeast, while also traveling to states such as Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma.
I finished 8 th out of 105 women in the Ladies Club Series earning me a first round invite to the 3 Gun Nation National Championship for 2016. This was my second season finishing in the top ten of the 3GN Ladies Club Series. I also finished 116 th out of 993 in the regular 3GN Club Series.
I am an NRA certified Basic Pistol Instructor and often donate classes as auction items to help raise money for local charities in my area such as the United Way of York County, and the Worthy Boys and Girls Camp.
In April 2016, I was asked to be a co-host on The Shooter’s Mindset and I graciously accepted. I have had the opportunity to talk to some amazingly talented shooters, and learn about different companies in the shooting industry.
