"Women On Target Instructional Shooting Clinics has a new program coordinator," Beth Hellmann e-mailed NRAblog. "Beginning July 26, Diane Danielson will hit the ground running. We're thrilled to have a woman of her caliber (no pun intended) join the staff. Welcome aboard Diane!"
Danielson, pictured at right, comes to us from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she worked in the printing industry for 33 years. The hunter and NRA Certified Instructor says she has always aspired to a career at NRA HQ.
"I took a basic rifle course at age 10, with my mom as the instructor," Danielson said. "Shortly thereafter I became a junior member of the NRA."
Now an NRA Life Member, Danielson is ready to join the staff of NRA Women's Programs, which houses both Women On Target shooting clinics and Women On Target hunting excursions; the Refuse To Be A Victim program; the Women's Wilderness Escape; postal matches; and more.
These programs are not anything new to Danielson, who has coordinated shooting clinics for women in Wisconsin for the past four years.
"I'm eager to expand the Women On Target clinics, to share what I have learned, as well as all that I will learn," she said. "The main focus will be getting clinics into clubs that haven't hosted them before."
Danielson, who is in the process of moving to the northern Virginia area, lives with her two labrador retrievers.
