As founder of Shua Life Skills, I have hired and trained amazingly passionate instructors who have effectively helped thousands of children to become physically and mentally fit. My goal and that of the instructors I employ centers on teaching and educating adults and children about the different ways that they can train their bodies and minds while incorporating necessary life skills like respect, deep breathing and teamwork. Shua Life Skills focuses on a school wide approach to educating children through our enrichment programs, staff workshops and parent trainings.
I have my B.S. in Business Management from Rutgers University and a Master's of Education specializing in Early Childhood from Capella University. I have devoted years to studying philosophy, psychology and other modalities in order to understand the mind with a special focus on children and their development.
