About Melissa

Hi, I'm Melissa, the owner and founder of Modern Defense, LLC. I launched this business that specializes in offering firearm safety courses for many reasons, but first..

My passion for firearms and more importantly, firearm education, came from, well, my mama..

Inspiration​: My mom was my personal link to the industry. She was an NRA instructor as well and her passion for building an individual's confidence to shoot by instilling firearm safety awareness and a solid foundation of shooting technique was admirable. After her passing, I felt compelled to continue her legacy. Her presence as a female in a male-dominated industry was an inspiration as well. I want to continue her legacy, and bring that presence to say you can be feminine and still have an interest in firearms.
