THE INNOVATOR

After tours of duty in multiple wars as a Navy Corpsman, I found myself broken and worn down. Through higher education degrees in Exercise Science, Nutrition, Wellness & Performance, Tactical Strength & Conditioning, and Health Science, I found another outlet for my passion for helping others. In doing athletic operations, strength & conditioning, and nutrition for professional sports teams and tactical athletes, I saw the need for clean supplementation backed by science that's formulated for both performance and wellness.

THE PLAYERS

As a former Division 1 athlete and minor professional hockey player, I have always had a passion for taking care of myself. Body Elite is the epitome of that.

The Mindfully Tactical Foundation

 

I began the Mindfully Tactical Foundation in 2023, inspired by my personal experience with the complexities of transitioning from military service to civilian life. Recognizing the need for more comprehensive support for those navigating this shift, our foundation focuses on enhancing the psychological and physiological resilience of individuals often exposed to high-stress situations - such as tactical athletes and veterans.

 

Our primary goal is to support veterans transitioning from service to civilian life. This period often brings unique emotional, mental, and practical challenges. However, our mission goes beyond that. We strive to assist veterans in making informed educational decisions and offer guidance in navigating the intricacies of the GI Bill and Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E) services. Moreover, our mentoring services provide personal, hands-on advice to help tactical athletes on their unique paths.

 

Through our unique programs, we aim to provide individuals with the tools and resources necessary to manage pressure, make sound decisions, and think strategically, whether in service or facing everyday civilian life. Our approach hinges on cultivating mindfulness, promoting strategic thinking, and fostering resilience to help tactical athletes reach their goals. We offer a wide range of classes and workshops, both online and in person, at the Cameron, North Carolina YMCA. These include mindfulness exercises, resilience-building strategies, educational planning, and benefits navigation, all tailored to meet the unique needs of those regularly exposed to high-stress situations.

 

More than a resource hub, the Mindfully Tactical Foundation is a vibrant community. We're deeply committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels understood and valued. Through shared experiences and understanding, we aim to build resilience and improve the lives of tactical athletes, taking one mindful step at a time. Here at the Mindfully Tactical Foundation, we don't just facilitate resilience; we embody it.

 

Stay Mindful, Stay Tactical!

As the creator and designer of both the Mindfully Tactical and Strategic Command classes for the Mindfully Tactical Foundation website, I am proud to have developed comprehensive programs based on my published books. Mindfully Tactical draws insights from my book "Mindfully Tactical: Practical Strategies for Thriving in High-Stress Situations," offering practical strategies to excel in demanding environments, both in service and post-service. Strategic Command, on the other hand, incorporates principles from my book "Tactical Resilience: Building Mental Strength Through Mindfulness," focusing on developing mental resilience for optimal performance in high-stress fields, both in service and post-service. These classes provide a unique blend of theory, practical techniques, and personal experiences to support individuals in thriving both personally and professionally, regardless of their current or former role in high-stress fields.
