Raised in the UK till moving to the States as a Registered Nurse. Began training in Judo when I was 10 because my mother was already a Shodan & the wanted her 3 girls to be able to look after themselves. I live in California now and I run Capital City Judo and teach Self Defense classes to the staff at UC Davis Health where I work as a regulatory nurse analyst. I have applied the principles of Judo to all parts of my life, Seiryoku-Zenyo (Maximum Efficiency) & Jita-Kyoei (Mutual Welfare and Benefit). It has helped when caring for patients and navigating my career.
