Meet your instructor

Maddy started her career as a law enforcement officer in the US Coast Guard while simultaneously completing her Bachelor’s degree in National Security. During this time she was selected for multiple fellowships, awarded “Student of the Year” of her graduating class and became a x4 published author with notable works for Roman and Littlefield and other academic journals. Upon graduation, she received a $50,000 Rotary Global Grant Scholarship that funded her research and Master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Resolution at the University of Manchester in England.

Maddy returned home from England and became a full-time firearms instructor, which later led to the founding of her company, The Red Letter Project. Rather than returning to law enforcement, she felt God leading her to continue building the business. Since then, she has had the opportunity to work with major brands, to include partnerships with Safariland, Norma, KGM, Safelife Defense, and more. She has taught thousands of beginner students and counting and is a 2x nominee for the “Firearms Instructor of the Year” and “Female Influencer of the Year” industry awards.

The Red Letter Project is not only a firearms training company, but also as a Christian mission project. Maddy and her mother use their real life experience to facilitate training scenarios at their faith-based event programs. Additionally, they work with private grade schools to develop more secure facilities and train teachers how to better respond to active threats.

In addition to her shooting career, Maddy has been heavily involved in competitive sports since she was very young. She is an avid weight lifter, blue belt in Brazilian Jui Jitsu, and competed in mixed martial arts for over seven years. She is also a SCUBA Dive Master and certified skydiver. She is currently focused on competing in practical shooting sports and hopes to inspire more women to join her in this endeavor.
