Raised around firearms since she was young, Josette grew up in a very firearm friendly environment. Both parents were/are hunters & Josette gave hunting a shot while a teenager. Now a vegan, she no longer hunts but continues to be involved in the firearm industry.
For 8 years, she has been actively involved in our 2A rights. As a volunteer (former) office manager, current board member, Director of Development/ Event Planner & member of the Legislative Action team of Grass Roots NC, she works the front lines defending our 2A rights.
For the past 7 years, she has continued to hone her own firearm skills, while instructing women who are interested in self-empowerment thru self-protection. Josette is very passionate about women learning the necessary means to protect themselves with less lethal forms of self-defense to embracing new shooters to assisting those interested in stepping out into competitions.
Her current teaching certifications include NRA Basic Pistol, NRA Inside & Outside the Home Protection, Chief Range Safety Officer. She is also qualified to teach NC Concealed Carry Class. Josette is a Smith & Wesson armorer.
