I turn victims into Heroes

I'll help you push past the PTSD from past trauma and learn easy self-defense skills to give you back the confidence you were born with. We do this through three simple steps:


- Personal protection tools

- Simple self-defense techniques

Seeing women LIKE YOU gain confidence and peace of mind that comes with effectively mastering simple defensive techniques is what I live for! seriously. Knowing that YOU can protect yourself and your family from all the crazies out there is so EMPOWERING, and I can help you do just that :)

Let's be friends.

Find out how criminals attack

...so that you'll be overlooked as his next victim.

Why do I do what I do, you ask?

Pull up a chair, Honey... 

Twenty+ years ago, I was a kid with the world in the palm of my hands. I had it all! But that all came crashing down when a complete stranger attacked me with a gun to my head and a dirty sock in my mouth. GROSS! That was the first in a series of attacks throughout my life. Get to know me and I'll share the rest. After that first attack though, I spent years under an invisible cloak, not realizing I'd developed PTSD. The fact that you're still reading tells me you can probably relate in some way. 

I hate that for you. Truly.

Sadly, most women don't come to me for help until after something traumatic has happened

In fact, I didn't seek personal training until after my first THREE attacks so I totally get it.

The Ugly Truth

3 out of 4 women in the U.S. will become victim to a violent crime in their lifetime {FBI}. That's about 2.5 million per year. And, sexual assault victims are 5x more likely to be re-victimized.  Ug! Let's go ahead and change that RIGHT NOW. Today.


Now for the GOOD stuff

{Eventually} I found ways to cure myself of PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. And let me stop you right there to say that in no way am I a therapist or counselor. I'm just a girl who got fed up with the ten years of nightmares, distanced relationships, and don't even get me started on the massive tension headaches and anxiety. But, I did it. I overcame that head trash and you can too. I've developed a super simple system (that's a lot of S's) for moms and work-a-holics like you who don't have oodles of time to take a bunch of self-defense classes and read All. The. Books. In fact, I can GUARANTEE YOUR SUCCESS in about a month by working with me for only five minutes a day :)

I went to the Holster Happy Hour to learn about different carrying options, (I don't carry yet) but I had such a good time & met a lot of new friends too! So many cute options, & learning all the why's & why not's was super cool from an unbiased lady, that carries daily & shoots often in real life. Thanks for taking the fear out & inserting fearless in everything you do to keep women & their children safe!

Wonderful {consultation and range instruction}. I'm so glad I did this and will be booking again for more training. Tania is highly trained and knowledgeable and she has a woman's perspective on self defense and shooting. You won't be able to learn in this way from your husband or boyfriend. Book now! You will love it!
