April is a daughter, sister, wife, and mother of 2 beautiful children. She loves Girl Scouts, 4-H, NRA, and the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation for their commitment to educating our youth about firearm safety and has volunteered with each of these programs as away to support her ultimate goal “To never read another news story about an accident between a child and a firearm”. She has spent the last 10+ years in pursuit of that goal as an Instructor and Training Counselor for the NRA. While her primary focus is now on educating women in safe use and handling of firearms, she always keeps her students families in the back of her mind.
Through constant improvement of her own skills and seeking out instruction from high quality and competent instructors, April has been able to further her goals and improve on the courses she is able to offer to her students. April acts as a facilitator and Regional Director for A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League, through which she has been able to bring new programs, instructors, and even IDPA competitive shooting events to her area. She has worked and shot at major matches and loves to compete with other likeminded individuals.
