Year Born: November 7th, 1994
Gun model(s): Caesar Guerini Invictus III Sporting M-SPEC 12g with 32″ barrels because it has a slim profile and perfect balance!! I love having my fixed chokes (M/IM) and the weight of the overall gun allows me to move very smooth.
Also the Syren Tempio Sporting 3 barrel Combo (20/28/.410) — I like this combo to shoot my sub gauges because the weight stays almost exactly the same so it’s not like having a different gun in my hands for each gauge. I also like this gun for beginners during instruction because they are able to hold it up and it ALWAYS fits without having to make any adjustments.
Any Modifications: Custom stock fit to me on my Caesar Guerini Invictus III M-SPEC, and the Syren Tempio is the standard Syren stock with no modifications.
Began shooting: I received my hunting license and my first gun for my tenth birthday! It has been game over ever since.
Starting out hunting, and exploring a little in Olympic Bunker trap in high school, I soon learned that sporting clays would become my priority and main interest out of all the shooting sports! SCTP played a major role in my shooting career. I was on the varsity team and all four year of high school we went to Nationals in Sparta, Illinois. I won Lady Championship of my division all four years! I have recently expressed some interest in 3 gun and I would like to see where the future may possibly take me in that discipline.
Residence/Hometown: I was born, raised, and still live in Branchburg, NJ

What’s your advice on getting new lady shooters involved?
The best advice I can give to any women wanting to try out any type of shooting is to start with the proper instruction. Yes, I know, it is usually expensive but I believe it is better to start out with the correct knowledge, equipment to experiment with and fundamentals then to have to fix bad habits in the future because you wanted to figure it out yourself.
What knowledge can you share that would make ladies better shooters?
What I have always been taught is that in order to improve you must get experience and if you don’t get out there you will never become a better shooter— shoot more practice, compete more, get out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself!
