EXTERNAL BUSINESS GROWTH STRATEGIST
I started training in the martial art of Taekwondo when I was 7 years old and received my master rank (4th Degree Black Belt) in 2015. I've been involved in the martial arts industry for over 10 years - I've worked in just about every position there is in this business (part-time instructor, full-time master, manager, marketing lead, etc.) In 2016, I was in charge of opening and operating a Taekwondo training center in the East Boise area. I was able to successfully grow the school from 0 to 300 active students in the first year of opening and reached a growing peak of 430 in 2020. I also graduated from Boise State with a degree in Business/Entrepreneurial Management in 2016. I am very passionate about fitness and health, and also teaching people on adapting the "Black Belt" mindset.
