It’s difficult to have a full understanding of the immense stress and pressures that people in public service (Police/Fire/Medical) feel unless you’ve experienced it yourself. It can be even more stressful for women, who often operate in male dominated environments that force them to adjust and adapt. Today’s guest has made it her mission to help these badass women thrive in and out of their workplaces.
Kate Bailey is a writer, coach, entrepreneur, and advocate for social change among women. In February 2019 Kate resigned from the FDNY EMS Academy in Queens as an instructor. Today she still operates an unofficial community of approximately 700 women called the FDNY Sisters, a group of women in service who are dedicated to changing the way the service values women, and the way women value themselves and each other through extreme sisterhood.
She also operates a coaching and personal development service for called Woman 911. Woman 911 Academy serves badass women in high-stress occupations. The academy is focused on women in EMS, Fire, Police, First Responders, Military personnel, medical workers such as nurses, PAs and doctors and any woman in a high stress occupation.
