"So far I have received about 10 hours of personal instruction from Lisa.  I think I am an intermediate level shooter and certainly qualify as a Senior citizen.  I carry a 9mm pistol.   So far Lisa has helped me improve significantly in the following areas (or taught me many things I did not know.)   Safe gun handling; situational awareness and tactical movements; drawing from a holster both outside and inside carry; target acquisition and accuracy; multiple targets; targets with ‘bad guys” mixed with “good guys”; shooting while moving; reloading while moving; one hand shooting; moving cover to cover while shooting one handed; safely moving a gun from one hand to the other;  range safety precautions and rules.  She doesn’t force me to do everything her way but takes into consideration my physical limitations and preferences (if safe).  She explains things clearly and demonstrates when necessary.  She is very knowledgeable and professional.  I would readily recommend her to anyone wanting to improve shooting skills."
