Educated primarily as a Registered Nurse, I have found myself in numerous roles teaching others.  I am able to break down things into both it’s technical and principle/conceptual basis and articulate it in a way which promotes better understanding to the client.  I have also studied Learning and Assessment to a Masters Level under Chester University in the UK.

I genuinely enjoy seeing people develop.  It’s a simply awesome experience seeing the ‘light bulbs’ switching on in peoples eyes when they have a break through in their game and knowing I helped to get them there.  Or seeing the camaraderie formed between people on the mat as they polish their game and try to outwit one another.  To positively affect a persons life is immeasurable and priceless.

I am extremely proud of representing the Crazy Monkey Defense Program and Monkey Jits Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on the Sunshine Coast and I look forward to coaching you soon.
