In Episode 13 we introduce Sigrid Rivera a U.S. Marine Corps First Sergeant, and endurance warrior. Originally from Puerto Rico, Sigrid moved to West Palm Beach Florida when she was 15 years old, and enlisted in the Marine Corps immediately after high school. Her career includes working on all types of aircrafts as an aviation electronics technician. She has served as a Marine Security Guard in Embassies around the world. She was a Marine Corps Drill Instructor and Senior Drill Instructor at Parris Island, and is certified as a martial arts instructor, martial arts instructor trainer, and Force Fitness Instructor. She is one of 15 Marines across the globe that holds the rank of 4th degree Black Belt Instructor Trainer, and is the only female in the Marine Corps to have achieved that status. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with. She now serves as First Sergeant in Baton Rouge for a reserve unit.
Listen to her story, and hear her move from natural athlete, to courses and training that truly tested her. She shares her resources and struggles, and what it takes to keep moving forward. Sigrid embodies the endurance warrior spirit, and is not just a Leader of Marines, but natural leader to all around her.
