Meet Andréa Williams

Personal Safety Consultant
Founder & CEO, Silhouettes Firearms Training

Andrea Williams is the founder, owner, and lead instructor at Silhouettes Firearms Training, LLC. After serving 14 years in the US Military, and building a non-profit organization in the civilian sector, Andrea continued looking for ways to serve her community. The idea of creating Silhouettes stemmed at the peak of a turbulent 2020 nationwide. Andrea’s instinctual desire to keep her family safe spurred the need to find a training facility and become reassured in gun safety education and training.

The facility she trained at offered the blueprint in encouraging students to visit opportunities of becoming a Certified/Licensed Instructor, as well. In essence, go beyond getting trained—become a trainer. This was how she envisioned serving her community—by giving back the very professionalism and empowering disposition she received in her own training. Silhouettes officially launched in May 2021 and opened its doors December 2021.

Andréa is also a safety educator for Damsel in Defense which has quality products for your defensive needs.
