I'm just a beach girl born and raised in South Jersey. I grew up with law enforcement in my blood. My father was killed in the line of duty in 1995, and I was basically raised by the amazing law enforcement community that I am privileged enough to now call my brothers. I've been working for the NJDOC for seven and a half years, where I am currently a Sergeant. When I'm not at work or relaxing by the waves, you can either find me picking things up and putting them down at my favorite gym (which is Atilis), or rolling around in mud at an OCR event (obstacle course race). I tend to be a bit of a hillbilly; if it involves hunting, fishing, or getting dirty, chances are I'm there! Lucky for me I have Getskulle to clean up. I would like to compete in the NPC one of these days, but I'm always working on different fitness goals. This year, I'm branching out from OCR and focusing on ultra running. I have to eat more carbs for running, so its a love/hate relationship. The cop/donut stereotype totally applies! I think it's important to set goals for yourself and work hard to achieve them. Once you accomplish one, you should have your next goal lined up and ready to go. We get one shot at this life, make sure you live it!
All I am is a woman with a vision. At the age of 17, right after I graduated from high school, I joined the Navy. I became a corpsman and went to surgical tech school. After eight years and a couple months I got out of the Navy and studied criminal justice at Boise State University, and got a state job helping veterans transition from active duty to civilian life.
After a year there I was offered a position at an AR manufacturing company. That is where I found my passion in firearms. I was curious and I had so many questions about guns, but I was running into a problem. The only women that were shooting were hunters and competitors, and I wasn’t either. I wanted to train and take my safety into my own hands especially because I have a child. I started shooting and started making it my mission to get other females to learn how to shoot. I want women to know that they too can run a gun safely and correctly. If I can do it, and I am 4 11 and weigh 108 lbs., that they can do it too. We don’t have to be hunters, competitors, gun enthusiasts, or manly in order to learn how to shoot, that we can be feminine and be able to protect ourselves.
I like to test out products and share my experiences with other women and hopefully help them out by sharing what works for me and anything I might have learned in the process. It is my goal as a female shooter to empower other females and encourage them to get out there and shoot. That it is our right to carry a gun for our safety and our protection. I am just a regular girl that likes to be outdoors, shoot her bow, dress up and wear heels, but knows how to shoot a gun, I have found something that I am passionate about and I want to hopefully be a positive influence among other women. The female shooter community is so small and we need to learn from each other, stand together and refuse to be victims.

I have a passion for bodybuilding and have recently began competing in NPC Bikini division. Bodybuilding has been an incredible journey and doing it with Congenital Heart Disease has proven to be a challenge! There are times my body struggles to endure a certain level but as soon as my body allows – I get back to it! Though CHD certainly brings challenges in my daily life – it has bestowed many gifts. It has given me a more compassionate heart for those and their struggles, to be strong when I feel weak, and how precious life is – to enjoy, live and share love and kindness with each other. I am a mother of two sweet boys and I have a zest for kindness and positivity in life! I am honored to be part of the SKULLE team – a company whose core stands for positivity and creating something incredible for all of us warriors out there (and we all are) LETS DO THIS!

I’m a full time working wifey of 3 little boys. It makes me happy if I’ve inspired others to get fit, which fuels me to see how far I can push myself. I just love a new challenge! That is why I am always signing up for roadraces, obstacle races including Crossfit. My favorite challenge recently was the opportunity to see how Bad Ass I am on Season #1 of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge.
