About Pretty Defense
CEO, Mariko Lewis is a Criminal/Public Defense Investigator for the government, and saw a need for individuals young and old who may not, can not, and do not carry guns to be able to protect themselves in non-lethal ways. She started Pretty Defense in 2016 which is a line of products and services geared specifically for women sold at www.shopmyprettydefense.com.
Mariko holds a BA in Criminology & Sociology from Cleveland State University and a M.S. in Justice Administration. She has over 4 years of investigation experience and over 20 years experience serving the community. Her passion is to help others and keep the community safe and for everyday citizens to have the ability to purchase self defense products such as stun guns, pepper sprays, and other self defense items and protect themselves legally in the event someone attempts to violate them.
Our parent company, Self Sheid USA, LLC is a premier wholesale self defense company and a MBE, WBE, EDGE certified licensed vendor located in Ohio.
