Shirley Watral is an NRA certified firearms instructor, empowerment motivational speaker, and author of Heels to Holster. This book is a memoir of how she discovered the warrior inside as she survived an abusive relationship and thrived in the aftermath.
She has a passion for educating women on how to handle firearms safely so they can become their own first responder. She empowers others by sharing her own life story and wants to encourage women to build positively upon whatever has happened to them and become a warrior for their life.
Two causes near to her heart are the fight against sex trafficking and domestic violence.
She serves as the Secretary on the Board of Women Outdoor Media Association (WOMA) which focuses on increasing media attention for women in the fields of shooting, hunting, fishing and archery and she is the DC Project Florida State Director. DC Project is women for gun rights. Their mission is to raise awareness among the community and legislation that firearms safety and violence prevention are achieved through education, not legislation.
