Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

Sierra Gun Exchange is a firearm, ammunition and accessories store. The business found me. Friends and family would come to me with questions and suggestions when it came to purchasing and using guns, so I finally decided to make a business out of a hobby I truly enjoy.

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?

My first real job was working for a hardwood floor wholesaler as a warehouse worker. It was a very physically demanding job and taught me the value of working hard and appreciating everything that is earned. I still have my first paycheck framed in my office at home.

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

We just opened our doors a month ago. We plan to offer educational courses for gun owners to promote safety and common sense.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

I had the honor of serving our country on three tours and was able to go to 22 different countries in four years while in the Air Force.

What’s your hidden talent?

I can remember nearly every line to a movie or television show!

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

Heyday Café in Placerville

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

El Dorado Hills Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

And finally, customer service is…?

Everything to our business! We try to build customer satisfaction and loyalty on every interaction with our customers.
