For nearly 30 years, Jeff has worked in education as a youth motivational mental health speaker, school culture consultant, and expert on teen mental health and suicide prevention.
His own journey of mental health is his top priority. Jeff is diagnosed with major depression, bi-polar type 2, and PTSD.
In 2015, Jeff was 350 lbs and given less than a year to live by his doctor if he didn't change. His diabetes was going to be the cause of his death.
Desperate, he walked into Inlet Yoga, Murrells Inlet, SC as a last resort effort to get back into shape.
Little did he know what Yoga and Meditation would do for him mentally and emotionally. It saved his life and he openly talks about his journey in his motivational high school assemblies
Jeff is completing his 200 Hour Teacher Training to be a Certified Yoga Instructor.
