I started shooting sporting clays in 2011 when I took my dad out to shoot for father’s day and really enjoyed it and wanted more. So I started looking for different programs and found Jim Porters shooting clinics and decided to sign up. From there I quickly progressed and made the 20 gauge NSCA All-American team my first year. I was hooked and quickly scaled up the classes and there has been no looking back since then.

Primary Discipline:

Sporting Clays

What’s your advice on getting new lady shooters involved?

Keep the competitions friendly and make sure they have some friends out there to make it an exciting community of people to be with!

What knowledge can you share that would make ladies better shooters?

1. Proper Gun Fit is a must! It is never any fun to hold something that is big and bulky that leaves you bruised. This is one of the most common mistakes new female shooters make.
2. Concentration is a must, ladies must be able to have the ability to put their stresses behind them and focus on shooting.
3. Fun: the sport has got to be fun for ladies to want to keep coming back and investing their time.
4. Use low recoil loads, the last thing you want to do is get beat up in practice and have it lead to shooting becoming a chore.
5. Practice, practice, practice; This is the only way to keep improving your scores. Nothing happens overnight, especially shooting in the 90’s so keep your head up, keep having fun and you will be busting clays in no time!
