About Us

OUR HISTORY

LAV Group Consulting, LLC

LAV Group Consulting LLC is a family and veteran owned business born out of a desire for two parents to use their training and experiences to protect their young children. Utilizing John "Wil" Lavender's background in
US Army Special Forces and Britt Lavender’s federal service in crisis management and facilitation, the two realized they could serve a larger population by addressing the critical need to train people to deter and respond to the ever evolving threats of modern day.

Our cadre is made up of highly experienced instructors, all hailing from special operations backgrounds with a variety of additional skillets to ensure we can precisely address your needs. We started with providing training and assessments to our children’s daycare and preschool and continued to grow from that day. Although we specialize in active shooter situations, we are trained in a variety of crisis response and can work with requirements outside our focus area.
