How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Self Defense Expert?...More

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Self Defense Expert? 


To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share some very defining moments and the “why” that brought me to where I am today – coaching women like you on exactly what to do to embody empowerment and safety.

There is a reason why self-defense training came first before my now 16-year Law Enforcement Career. I remember very clearly when I was in my “young 20s” and how, even as a former University softball standout, Olympic hopeful, and a then-rising pharmaceutical rep, who thought of myself as young, fit and capable, with an “I’ll always be ok no matter what” mentality,  got a serious wake-up call on how personal safety can turn on a dime. I found myself at what was supposed to be drinks with 13 other reps but ended up being a gathering of three – Me, my female boss and "Mr. Corn-fed," a vice president of sales, at his penthouse. When my boss went to the restroom, I found myself in an unsolicited bear hug by a man who was 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, and I went to "absolute shutdown." I had NEVER felt a level of broken and defeat that I had in that very moment of not knowing how I got to that point or how to stop it. I “shut down completely.” Olympic level hopeful athlete to devastation in an instant. 


Although I was able to buy myself the time it took my boss to return from the bathroom and get out of there, I understood “never wanting to feel that level of defeat and to a degree “broken” ever again. I went blank. I didn’t have any resources to draw on because I always “thought” I would be ok no matter what. I thought my physicality and mindset would protect me and keep me safe….but it didn’t. I failed. And I know why now…but back then it was instant devastation.

And so began my journey teaching self-defense to give others a damn chance. I swore from that point forward that NO ONE, not anyone I loved, cared about, knew - as a friend, co-worker or any woman I could reach, would EVER EVER EVER feel that level of defeat if there was anything I could humanly do about it.

I joined law enforcement after 9-11 wanting to continue to serve others but in a more significant way, and often what I saw in my work broke my heart and infuriated me all at the same time. I would always think “If I could just have gotten them in a class.”

I am a Law Enforcement Master, “Train the Trainer” that holds Master Instructor Certifications in Firearms, Defensive Tactics, Ground Control, Officer Survival, Tactical Medical, I’m certified instructor in Vehicle Close Quarter Battle, I’ve been through S.W.A.T. School, I’ve worked all major areas of Law Enforcement functions to include being assigned to the D.E.A. as a Task Force Officer conducting High-Level Narcotics investigations and wiretaps across the country. On top of the physical training, I am also certified in Crisis Negotiation, Critical Incident Response, and actively study Force Science Analysis which focuses on the mind and body under perceived stress – whether it’s physical or mental.

I kept getting asked to do online content that would reach more women who didn’t have the opportunity to always physically train with me so I made the commitment to dedicate my online Self Defense Mastery Group and my new online Self-Defense Training Platform to meet those needs. I bring my 20 years of women’s self-defense training and my 16 years of law enforcement training into the most powerful online women’s self-defense and protection program!

This training brings you to a new level of understanding of your own capabilities so that you NEVER feel a level of defeat in any area of your life, period. That’s where I come in. I’m protecting you to a whole new level!

I will train you just like I have trained the over 10,000 women across the country, but I will also train you with a fierce focus program that dedicates itself to giving you every single golden nugget of information for life-saving success. There is no greater feeling on the planet than having someone tell me “what you taught me saved my life” or “I just needed to call you and tell you that what you taught me worked, and saved me from an assault!”

What makes you different from other Coaches?



What you will get from me is a Game Changer! It’s next level kick-ass that is dedicated to your success. And with that success, you will get the "real of it" from me. I’m not about selling a false sense of security when it comes to personal safety. I have put in the work through 1,000’s of hours of tactical training, certifications, problem solve scenarios, spent over 20 years training these techniques and tactics to civilians and Law Enforcement, and vetted them time and time again against 1,000’s of my Law Enforcement counterparts. If you have attended my in person training you know I pick the largest guy in the room to demonstrate on EVERY SINGLE TIME! You truly have to take a very specific look at who is training you and what their level of expertise is. And when you talk about taking a course that is on Self-Defense that may be needed to SAVE YOUR LIFE then I highly recommend making sure who is training you is skilled in what they are teaching, has put in the hours of training with their proven systems, and has clients that can speak on their behalf about being successful with what was taught. It’s brutal honesty about attack dynamics combined with determining your own level of kick-ass capabilities and problem-solving for better results. You are going to feel more empowered than you ever have and that empowerment moves mountains in personal safety!

Does this really work?


Yes! The result of our work is an approach to Problem Solving attacks like you have never seen before. It combines the realness of attacks, integrates your capabilities, guides you through proven problem solving tactics, and incorporates game changing technology in personal safety devices that give you the force multiplier you need to stop the attack and get home safely to your family. There is a reason why I have traveled across the country and trained over 10,000 women.  How I approach your physical safety takes YOU from “thinking” to “KNOWING” you will be ok going from Point A to Point B. But don’t just listen to me. Listen to those that have taken my course: (See Testimonials)
