Stacy DeBord is the facilitator of the Northeast TN chapter of A Girl and a Gun. She is passionate about shooting sports and expanding female participation. She believes that education is the best resource to allow women to overcome their fear, gain self-confidence, and take agency over their own personal safety.

She started her journey in the shooting sports many years ago in the backyard with her dad, a Marine 1stSgt, who taught her how to shoot a rifle. Over the years, she has taken numerous self-defense classes, both with and without firearms. Currently, Stacy holds the following designations:
• Concealed carry permit holder in TN
