I’ve been an avid hunter and casual shooter all my life and an NRA member since my teens. My family and I were introduced to competitive shooting and enjoyed the sport enough that we decided to build our own range and founded Ridge Crossing Shooting Club. We affiliated Ridge Crossing with International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA). My goals include introducing people to the shooting sports while providing a safe, enjoyable environment and experience and give quality instruction to those seeking to advance their shooting skills.

My interest in shooting took root during high school in JROTC. After high school graduation, it would be several years before I actively participated in the shooting sports. In 2005 the opportunity presented itself to shoot International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) matches, I was thrilled to be back in the shooting world. We made a decision as a family to develop a portion of our property into a gun range, and thus, Ridge Crossing Shooting Club was formed. I serve as the club President, my responsibilities include general administration of the range in partnership with my husband and daughter, which translates into doing whatever the situation calls for. In 2007, I became an IDPA certified Safety Officer. In 2010, I earned certification as an NRA Basic Pistol Instructor and I am listed with the MS Department of Public Safety as Enhanced Conceal Carry Instructor. Since the establishment of Ridge Crossing, I’ve had the opportunity to introduce numerous shooters to the world of shooting sports and look forward to continuing to recruit shooters to the sport. We are happy to assist you in learning and improving your shooting skills in order that you feel confident in your abilities to protect yourself and those in your life.
