My shooting career began when I became a Police Officer with the US Navy in 1991. I was assigned to Naval Air Station Alameda with the last of the Navy's trusty 1911 pistols as my constant companion. I began competing in Navy shooting competitions matches in 1998, as a Service Rifle, and Pistol shooter, earning Expert Marksmanship Medals in both. I began shooting and competing in civilian matches, National GSSF Matches, local IDPA and Practical Pistol Matches after I retired from the Navy in 2010. I left the Federal Bureau of Prisons after 15 years of service to teach full-time at El Camino Colleg.

I work full time for the El Camino College in Torrance, California, and represent the Double-Duty Donkey Shooting Team as a Shooter and Coach on an average of one to two matches a month since starting the team over 2 years ago. I also coach a Women's Shooting Team for the High Desert Chapter of A Girl and A Gun Shooting Team.

In my spare time, and weekends I am not competing, I voluntarily teach USCCA and NRA classes (as a certified Pistol, Rifle, and Shotgun Instructor) at the Apple Valley Gun Club, in Apple Valley, California.

I am a Retired US Navy Chief Gunnersmate; NRA Certified Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun; Refuse to be a Victim; NRA CRSO; US Navy Small Arms Instructor; US Navy Crew Served Weapons Instructor.
