With over 30 years of experience across multiple domains including the Fire Service, the US Army Special Operations Command and the Central Intelligence Agency, Jeff now serves as the COO & Chief Human Performance Officer for a Global Fitness Brand. After conducting Counterterrorism operations in over twenty-three countries, two combat zones and multiple high-threat/non-permissive environments, Jeff has the privilege of dissecting human behavior at a micro level in order to enhance individual and team performance in some of the most intense moments imaginable.
