I started #OutdoorDefense, an online video series, in 2019 after being encouraged by friends & family for over 2 years.


My love of adventure, the outdoors, traveling/hiking solo combined with educating people on self-defense is what inspired #OutdoorDefense. I want to help people open up their world, no matter what that means to them. I want people to feel confident making their world big instead of feeling like they to have to make it small to feel safe.  In Outdoor Defense videos, I share self-defense safety strategies that can encourage people to confidently enjoy the outdoors solo.


30 episodes of Season 1 are on IGTV and YouTube now.

Season 2 is here!

Learn simple self-defense strategies for your next outdoor adventure!
