I was fortunate enough to grow up in Alaska, “The Last Frontier”, the “Land of the Midnight Sun”. I grew up in a small town called Eagle River, just right outside of Anchorage. The outdoors has always been a big part of my life, from fishing, hiking, camping, shooting, hunting, and traveling. CC Tactics brand was created back in July 2014 just for fun, which then cultivated to where it is at present day. The brand was to simply spread awareness for women and firearms and supporting our 2nd Amendment Rights.
Beyond that comes my background, I first started working for a Law Enforcement agency in Alaska as their front line Recruiter which helped me find one of my passions. I then relocated to Seattle, Washington for 6 years and received my Master of Science in Criminal Justice back in 2011. Soon after, I decided to relocate to Arizona, or as some would call it… the desert.
Fishing is in my blood and I’ve got to give credit to my Father Frank for showing me the ways. I grew up fishing for salmon and trout on the Russian and Kenai River. Since I have relocated to Arizona I recently picked up bass fishing. I have been privileged enough to be able to fish side by side with one of Arizona’s best anglers Daniel Elias. Learning how to bass fish is a whole new level of fishing! Last year I was able to catch my personal best largemouth bass weighing in at eight and a half pounds. I would have to admit that was one of the happiest days of my life.
I’ve been fortunate to have been published three different times in tactical/firearms magazines. Currently on page two of The Personal and Home Defense magazine till July 2016. Recently shot an introduction video for Shooting Range Industries in Las Vegas for their live fire simulator range located at Machine Guns Vegas. I’m heavily involved with the community supporting our troops and veterans. I’ve always had a passion for helping people and my faith is extremely important in my life. I believe in giving back to our community as much as we can. I have been fortunate to have amazing parents that provided so much support in my endeavors. My mother always reminded me, “for nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
This year’s focus will be to continue to empower women and to continue to inspire others to get outdoors. I truly believe in living your life to the fullest each and every day. Every weekend you’ll see me wandering in the great outdoors. People forget the beauty of being out there. Remember that jobs fill your pocket, but adventures fill your soul. I’ll also focus on providing more tips, videos, and information to novice and beginner shooters.
