About Us

Your Situational Awareness, Safety Instructor and Economic Empowerment Educator

My Story


A survivor of traumatic events in my life, three military combat tours, sexual assault, stalking and domestic violence.  I empower women to #TakeYourPowerBACK Emotionally | Financially | Physically | Spiritually.  I am dedicated to empowering women with the tools, confidence and knowledge to safeguard yourself & family members. Through Situational Awareness, Safety, and Financial Education (SASEE) Not Without Defense, LLC

My Why:
There was a rise of attacks on women I took notice that seemed as though it was escalating daily to me especially in the city I was living in, and a horrible assault that led to the death of a young lady really hit home with me and propelled me to step out of my shadows and take action to help women and make a difference.

Not Without Defense, Empowered Safety was founded in the year of 2014.

2015 I became a Damsel In Defense Pro and an NRA, Refuse to Be a Victim, Certified Instructor.

I left Damsel In Defense and in 2018 I re-branded to SASEE Not Without Defense.

2020 SASEE Not Without Defense became an LLC and added a custom product line.

After a period of inactivity during the global Covid 19 pandemic I am thrilled to announce SASEE, Not Without Defense LLC, is now back in business.  Working in the background and restructured business plan I did a soft re-launch in January 2024 and will begin with new services and products in March 2024 I look forward to empowering, educating and equipping you for your safety.
