The Book

One woman’s journey to power and freedom, firefighting and dancing

Brave and Awake is one woman’s story of truths discovered and lessons learned over a lifetime. The author, a 19 year veteran firefighter, offers her unique experiences and truths learned as a 21st Century woman, breaking social and personal barriers on her way to empowerment and freedom. The author’s adventures from firefighting to dancing, capture the spirit of the modern woman—one who faces her fears, trusts her intuition, thinks for herself and creates her own happiness.

And while this pocket sized gem offers helpful tools and insights gained from the author’s own personal experiences, Brave and Awake ultimately invites and inspires readers to become their own best expert along the way.
