Vicki Kawelmacher and The Women’s Shooting Academy: Educate, encourage, empower

Vicki Kawelmacher opened The Women’s Shooting Academy, in Reno, Nev., 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.
