I know what it is like to be the victim of a violent attack. I know the physical wounds will heal in time, but the mental wounds do not heal as quickly. I know what it is like to not be in control and to have low self-confidence. I also know what it is like to battle back from 13 years of debilitating health issues. These experiences are why I fought hard to regain that lost control and repair my confidence.
With hard work, I was able to regain my confidence and control. I have spent my whole life challenging myself to succeed. This would not have been remotely possible had I not made that first step to recovery.
One of my most significant accomplishments has been my work in Search and Rescue. For me, nothing compares to finding someone and saving them from harm or, at the least, locating an individual to bring closure to their family.
I am proud of all my accomplishments in life, as anyone would be. However, my most significant achievement was taking back control of my life and healing the wounds I suffered at the hands of another.
I started Strike Back And Survive to help others go from Victim to Victor just as I did. There are not many feelings in life like the one where a person comes to me fearful, and I can send them back with confidence and control. I am living proof that you are not out, even if you’re down. With the proper tools, you can overcome fear and build the confidence to do anything you wish.
I have always been a firm believer that no one ever has the right to rob you of control over your own body and mind. It makes no difference if you’re in poor health, elderly, or even a woman. I can teach you to defend yourself against an attacker of any size and regain and retain control.
