Why do you love your chosen profession?
I love seeing people improve. It doesn’t matter if it's teaching a child to punch through a wooden board or helping someone set a new PR in squats. Knowing that someone was able to improve is a huge rush to me, much of it comes from my own struggle to improve. Until a while ago, it felt like I was falling stagnate in my life, things weren’t moving forward, and it felt like challenges were just piling up against me. As I reached out to others, it helped me put myself into the right state of mind to pick myself up and push forward in the way I always do. I want to help others in the same position.
What is your superpower?
Humor. While I can be serious when I need to, I know the value of humor. The right joke or comeback at the right time helps derail negative thoughts and was one of the few ways I got through difficult situations like Afghanistan. Keeping spirits high can provide that final push.
