Autumn Clifford is the founder of ‘She’s An Asset’- a women’s self-protection company focused on empowering women through situational awareness training. Her teachings are unique as she applies her law enforcement, martial arts, and education background.
Autumn holds a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice, specializing in Public Administration, is an Adjunct College Professor instructing Criminal Justice, and hosts the popular podcast show: 'She's An Asset.'
At the young age of 5, Autumn was already learning the ins and outs of mixed martial arts, and by the age of 12 Autumn got her first taste into the world of teaching and coaching, where she became one of the youngest instructors at her Martial Arts dojo, teaching ages ranging from 4-60. Autumn went on to become a Captain of her Sport Karate Team, achieving accolades, such as 3x Maine State Grand Champion, placing second in New England as well as winning several national titles. Autumn's expertise spans various disciplines, from Shotokan Karate to Muay Thai Kickboxing, underpinning her successful self-protection programs.
I have a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Criminal Justice. I am a second-degree black belt in Shotokan karate and have been studying a mix of martial arts for over 20 years. I've also been a teacher in martial arts for over 10 years. I've was a police officer full time for 6 years prior to my injury.
At the age of twenty, Autumn started a career in law enforcement. Her experience is comprised of working for a Sheriff's Department providing security to Judges and court personnel as well as full-time patrol work for a few City Police Departments. She was also certified through the Maine Police Academy as an instructor and becoming certified in defensive tactics. Autumn was one of the first members to be a part of Maine's Federal Human Trafficking Task Force in conjunction with Homeland Security Investigations.
Unfortunately, after just six and a half years on the force, she suffered a career-ending back injury that left her couch ridden, depressed and as she describes it, at her “rock bottom”. During that time, Autumn decided to transfer her skills to life coaching, utilizing her training, education, and experience to help others break through roadblocks in their lives. Autumn remains active in law enforcement as a part-time police officer working in a community policing position.
