Mandee is a warrior and has lived by the Spotter Up mantra for years, unbeknownst to her. She thrives on fun facts and aims to know, at the very minimum, a little about a lot. Her interests span a multitude of fields. Talk to her about anything. She spends the majority of her free time spoiling her two dogs and kicking her own ass in the gym. She likes to lift heavy things and then put them down. If you can’t find Mandee on the ground, look to the sky. She loves to climb shit, despite her fear of heights. She’s absolutely a Harry Potter nerd and definitely a subpar chef in the kitchen, thanks to her many years in fine dining management. She shoots a lot of pool, has a lot of tattoos, and pets as many dogs as she possibly can. If it’s less than 85 degrees out, it’s too cold. She loves being surrounded by big, green, leafy plants but plant tags that say “thrive on neglect” do the best in her household. In 2014, she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and spent the next few years running away from her degree. She has since returned to school to pursue her Master’s Degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, with the eventual aim to work as an independent business consultant. She was introduced to the importance of self-defense at a young age by her dad. Although she was always in the presence of firearms, it wasn’t until recently that she was provided the opportunity to dive face-first into the gun community. Mandee was immediately enthralled by what was being shown to her, but had trouble relating to the pink, sparkly, bubblegum Barbie image many stores pushed in order to appeal to their female customers. Her aim, among many other things, is to show that you can be a strong, decisive, independent, feminine gun-toting badass without subscribing to a certain image. I WILL FIND A WAY OR I WILL MAKE ONE. SPOTTER UP!
