JesscaMy name is Jessica and it would be my honor to help allow women of our community to learn to defend themselves, their families and their sense of well-being. These days violence and hatred are all around us. It is critical we prepare for the worst. Our motto is: Trouble never waits until you’re ready.

It is my goal to help you learn to LIVE with awareness, how to protect the ones you LOVE, and how to LOAD and be ready. A healthy dose of situational awareness can make a huge difference in your life. You can gain confidence by learning how to defend yourself and your loved ones. You can gain experience in knowing how to safely carry and utilize a firearm if the occasion arises.

Live Love Load is still in development but until we are ready to offer firearm instruction to the women of the Lowcountry (SC), we are proactively joining the firearm community at-large through blogging and advocacy.

As a domestic abuse and gun violence survivor (separate events in my life); advocating for all types of abuse and mistreatment is close to my heart. No one, man or woman should be mistreated. Women are especially targeted, we are taught to be people-pleasers, to be accommodating, and culturally taught that we are to be seen and not heard- objectified and celebrated for objectifying ourselves. Live Love Load is here to help every woman find and develop her inner badass. Just give it one shot…
