The combination of Jake's academic achievements and diverse professional experience sets him apart from many within the outdoor/adventure sports coaching field. Jake's attention to detail, organization, understanding of teaching and learning processes, and technical abilities, are simply some of the assets that clearly establish Jake as a true professional.
Jake has been an incredible mentor and colleague. He has played a crucial role in my adventure sport leadership development, supporting both my personal skills and coaching techniques . Jake’s approach is very diverse and thorough to meet everyone’s needs and abilities.
Jake is able to work in different locations, cultures, and demographics around the world. He is able to successfully maneuver through all challenges that language and other barriers bring. He assesses everyone at the beginning of programs to meet everyone’s needs. Jake also sets up everyone for the success by reaching out early on to prepare everyone physically and mentally.
Jake goes above and beyond the call of duty in everything he does. As a coach, I have known Jake to always make himself available to his students if they want to go get some practice in, sit down to discuss new technical strategies, or if they simply want to learn more about adventure sports. Jake’s preparedness in every situation is stellar, and he handles himself with the utmost professionalism.
