Board of Directors

Wade Mull

The founder of The Sugar Cookies organization and served as a Navy Deep Sea Diver at Naval Special Warfare Group 1 from 2003-2008.

Before attending dive school Wade attended the Hull Technician A-School, Engineering Common Core and was a “Mud Pup” at the Naval Experimental Diving Unit. After his military service, he achieved his dream of being a full-time touring rock musician for 7 years. He also holds an undergrad in business management and an M.B.A. in entrepreneurship and global business from Pepperdine University. Currently, he is a partner in JourneyXP, a cutting-edge enterprise software company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Wade Mull started the group 3 years ago with the hopes of giving back to the special operations community and reducing the massive tax burden created when candidates fail or quit these programs. Along the way, he realized that physical fitness wasn’t the only thing future candidates needed. This led Wade to start the meditation and mentoring side of the Sugar Cookies as a way of trying to make sure that candidates were mentally ready, not just physically ready.
