Why Leadership Studies? The discipline of leadership is so many different things for me. It starts with what most might assume; like leadership theories, practical applications and the evaluation of some great and not-so-great leaders (both past and present). That’s fun but what many don’t know is that we get into strategic forecasting and decision-making, research methods, motivation techniques, change models, negotiating, facilitation, bias evaluation and control, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, human mind heuristics, organizational structuring, psychology, business, international business and global trends, qualitative and quantitative analysis, influence and behavior evaluation and so much more. It’s a highly challenging discipline once you get into the advanced stages. Now, it’s a passion.

Why Health Science Studies? Health is definitely a passion of mine and has been since late 1999 when I suffered appendicitis that resulted in years of health issues that doctors were unable to help me with. I once considered going the M.D. route. However, I soon came to believe that many medical professionals are more about symptom management, instead of true healing. So, I went the Health Science route instead because I felt that I could do more good this way. For me, I chose to focus some of my advanced education on topics such as epidemiology, disease prevention, exercise prescription, health, and fitness psychology (with a Cognitive-Behavioral Orientation), alternative health solutions, applied nutrition & supplementation, general sports medicine, and fitness training and coaching.

Why Security Studies? Think about our current state of affairs. Between the threats of terrorism, outbreaks, civil unrest, crime, or even global war, it made sense to get a better understanding of the tactics potential adversaries might use and the measures one can take to counter them. As far as I’m concerned, understanding security is necessary for living a somewhat safe life in this day and age. My security education focused more on topics such as Homeland Security, Emergency Planning, Information Security, Terrorism Motivations and Adversaries, the Legal Aspects of Security, Loss & Crime Prevention, and both General & Physical Security.
