I started HER TACTICAL with the focus of empowering and fortifying women in self-defense, and to provide effective, safe and comfortable concealed carry solutions for women. When you learn about safety protocols and become skilled you have a new found confidence in defending yourself and your loved ones. We, as women are becoming more aware of our surroundings and the events and turmoil that are occurring today. If you don’t know someone or been abused yourself, you only need to watch a couple of Tik Tok videos of woman who were almost victim to or were a victim of human trafficking to know the importance of self-defense. I have had multiple insidences if life, starting at the age of 8 when I was attacked by a stranger who forced me into the woods and attempted to rape me.
I am passionate about advocating for women to protect themselves and their families. Women are noticing the need to protect themselves in a responsible way.
I have been a Realtor® for many years and I am sometimes in a home on my own with a complete stranger. After hearing the tragic story about Realtor® Beverley Carter of Arkansas I knew I had to make some changes to my personal safety.
I bought my first gun and took a concealed carry class to get my firearms permit. While at the gun store I asked where the concealed carry holsters for women were. I was told they didn’t have any. How was I going to conceal this weapon? I don’t want to draw attention to myself and let people know I am carrying! Every gun store I went to was the same. There simply was nothing to conceal with except maybe a purse but I’m not carrying a purse while doing an open house.
I tried a few online products but felt the variety was still lacking. After years of not consistenly conceal carrying due to the lack of suitable holsters available I went to work on researching and designing holsters that are comfortable, safe, light weight and perfect for a womens wardrobe to deep conceal no matter what the outfit of the day is. The HER TACTICAL brand was born soon after. It’s been quite a journey to get here but the overwhelming support and love has been outstanding.
I am a great believer in education and constant learning. Education in self-defense and firearms training goes hand in hand with concealing a weapon. Knowing how to effectively and safely use your firearm is a lifesaving skill and many women are choosing to get trained from certified instructors that focus especially on womens self-defense. This is why I created the complimentary ‘Partners’ page. It’s a great directory resource to find firearm training for women no matter where you live in the U.S.
Like a lot of women I want the freedom to live a full and active life without the worry of losing it to a predator. I don’t have the strength of a man and I don’t want to draw attention to myself when wearing a firearm. I have the support of a wonderful husband but he can’t be my body guard every minute of every day. I have 5 children under my wings and their safety is my top priority.
I believe in God and that he watches over us but we must do our part. I believe in the safety and protection of our families and honor the right to bear arms for the preservation of life, liberty, and property.
