INSTRUCTOR BIO: SHIRLEY WATRAL
Shirley is a firearms instructor with a NRA certification and, is an empowerment motivational speaker for women.
After a long career as a senior manager with Florida County Government, she decided to create a new path for her future. After being introduced to a local gun club, she decided to pursue learning more about shooting and firearms safety; that was five years ago. Today, she is proud to say that she has taken dozens of classes and has conducted many training sessions for both, men and women.
Watral has developed a passion for educating women on how to handle firearms safely and be able to defend themselves when needed. She also feels it is important that our youth know about firearms since there have been so many accidents that could have been prevented with the right training.
Her interest in firearms led her to become the general manager of a Florida gun range for two and a half years. She is a 3Gun competition shooter and has competed in Florida, and several out of state matches.
She’s served on several committees that support First Responders, Veterans, widows of Navy Seals and other causes. Her new cause is helping to fight human trafficking.
Watral 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.
Her desire to teach and speak led to the development of her current business where she empowers others by sharing her own life story. She wants to encourage women to build positively upon whatever has happened to them, and become the person they aspire to be.
