Who or what got you into shooting?
Self-defense and growing up in a family that hunts.

Do you shoot handguns, shotguns, rifles or all of the above?
All of the above, but I prefer hunting rifles.

Why are you involved with the NRA or how do you support their efforts?
My husband is a member of the US Marines, and the Second Amendment is something we take very seriously in our household.

What do you do to relax and unwind — watch TV, listen to music, go to movies, catch a game, exercise, something else?
I am an avid runner, love to waterski, and enjoy reading. I also write a blog about my life as a military wife, and all the fun things in-between.

Your greatest accomplishment?
I've graduated college with my Bachelors degree, and am now pursuing my Masters in Business and Human Resource Management. I value both my education, and all the many opportunities I've been presented with.
