I struggled. I was in a dark place for a long time. I was in pain, and I masked it with alcohol.  I was contemplating hurting myself.  I finally decided to reach out and ask for help, and I am grateful I did. FHE Health and The Shatterproof Program saved my life. If you are struggling, you don’t have to stay there. We can and will help you. Reach out today at 303.960.9819.

It was such an honor to have Kristen Ziman on the show. She is a sought after speaker, published author of Reimagining Blue and former Police Chief of Aurora Police Department in Auroral IL. Reimagining Blue is a passionate and personal analysis of a misunderstood profession from the vantage point of female police chief Kristen Ziman. Ziman credits her colorful childhood for the temperament that led her to gravitate toward policing, a profession where chaos is all in a day's work.

We cover a lot of topics in this episode. From Kristen's calling to police work, her rise in the ranks as a female officer, leadership, mental health with first responders and much more.

You can find Kristen and her book here:
