Silouan graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1991 and then accepted a commission in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marines, Silouan was involved in a jet training accident. In the ejection, Silouan's back was broken and his co-pilot tragically killed. This horrible event and the complications that followed led to the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. He was disability discharged and then had to learn to put his life back together. It began with a two-year motorcycle journey where he learned to live.
Silouan instructs on Responding to PTSD and Officers in Crisis, Overcoming Adversity, and Foundational Leadership. He teaches people to become leaders in all aspects of their lives, and to use the trials and transitions we all face as fuel to live free and lead with purpose. He has taught around the country at places such as: Walter Reed Medical Center, Fort Campbell, Camp LeJeune, to thousands of police officers and first responders from hundreds of law enforcement agencies, mental health professionals, corporations, non-profits and major universities. Silouan is a dynamic speaker whose classes are focused on delivering solid information and practical tools for living and leading. He provides a broad perspective that officers find refreshing, educational, and most of all, motivating to lead.
