How I first got into shooting:

My preferred shooting
My motto has always been "accuracy first, speed will follow."
My most prestigious titles are:
4-Time High Lady / Virginia-Maryland Section (2001-2004)
Why I like shooting USPSA matches:
I enjoy the challenge of shooting and the people involved in the sport. More importantly, it allows my husband and I to spend a lot of time together. There is rarely a weekend when we are not shooting.
My favorite USPSA event is:
Monthly match in York, PA ... it's like shooting a major match every month.
What I would additionally like you to know about me:
I had never picked up a gun before I started shooting in 2000. I never imagined how much fun shooting would be. I consider myself a recreational shooter, but I try to push myself with each match I shoot.

I am a very consistent shooter and simply enjoy shooting matches. I would love to have more time to practice and become an even better shooter but I try to maintain balance with family, work and play.
