Educate - Encourage - Empower

Vicki Kawelmacher opened The Women's Shooting Academy after personal and tragic events in her life reinforced the need for personal protection.

Her handgun training began in 2002 with a Basic Pistol NRA Certification. Since then, she has continuously increased her knowledge and certifications in handgun carry and personal safety.

Vicki has a commitment to teaching women to protect themselves from becoming a victim of a violent crime. Her passion in teaching has led her to become a women's safety speaker about developing a preparedness strategy in your daily life.
