What in the world would open up for you if you felt Safe?

Learn simple self-defense strategies to empower your next outdoor adventure!

Help me celebrate 3 Seasons and 60 episodes of Outdoor Defense with a badass Giveaway!

I created this series in 2019 after being encouraged by friends & family for over 2 years to combine my passions: my love of solo adventure, the outdoors and my love of teaching self-defense. I want to help women and people of all genders open up their world and feel confident in their ability to handle themselves while enjoying what they love.  In Outdoor Defense videos, in collaboration with IMPACT Personal Safety, I share self-defense safety strategies (both physical & verbal) that can encourage people to confidently hike, camp, backpack, fly fish, trail run/road run, road trip and more solo!

Let's open up your world!
