Bio
I was born and raised in Southern California, where I still live. I was in Law Enforcement for 15 years and learned great a deal about people (bad and good). While I was a Police Officer I taught Women's Self-Defense and saw how important it was to give back to the community by teaching women how to protect themselves.

When I retired from Law Enforcement I founded the Women's Self-Defense and Empowerment Group. I felt it very important to coninue on my quest to teach women how to be strong emotionally as well as physically. I brached out and created children's programs (girls/boys 6-11 years) and teen girls programs which help with current issues our young people are challenged with every day.

I am mobile and can come to you. I enjoy traveling to meet and empower women and children wherever they may be.
