Alisha Ketter



I’m a California native who moved to Reno, Nevada in the spring of 2013. I spent most of my career in the technology industry as a Software Engineer but also spent several years investing in the youth and women of my community. I have served as a Suicide Crisis Responder, Depression and Suicide Awareness educator as well as Teen Recovery Counselor and Youth Pastor.

After being the victim of two home burglaries and an assault, I decided to invest in my personal protection and thus began my journey into firearms. I have specialized in training women and children for the last several years and went onto own a training company with that focus.  I have since been privileged to train alongside several elite military units, law enforcement and firearms professionals from around around the world.

Currently, I hold several NRA Instructor Certifications in multiple disciplines, CCW Instructor  and I.C.E. Defensive Firearms Coach Certification.
