Edwina Parker

To setup a training session please feel free to email Edwina at edwina@defenderoutdoors.com, and let’s get your training on the right track.

Edwina is a mother and grandmother with a unique passion for teaching women and men the basics of firearms and firearm safety. Learning the tools necessary to defend you and your family and knowing you are capable of doing so without panic is an empowering and life changing skill that Edwina loves to pass on to others. She is passionate about sharing her training with those who have chosen to take full responsibility of their personal defense instead of depending on an outside source that unfortunately can arrive too late to save them.

Edwina specializes in teaching and training all new shooters, specifically women who feel more comfortable learning from another woman who understands their fears and frustrations regarding firearms. Her calm and comforting demeanor and teaching style instantly puts people at ease and paves the way for training success.

Edwina is also the chapter leader for the local Well Armed Woman chapter. TWAW is a national organization whose purpose is to Educate, Empower and Equip female shooters.
