BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Law Enforcement
Coping with the Stress of First Responder LifeA traumatic way of life: First responders have the incredibly difficult job of running toward danger while the rest of us run away. No training can prepare them for what they will see and endure. Kim Colegrove understands what it's like to watch someone go through that. After 30 years in law enforcement, her husband took his own life. This agonizing experience opened Kim's eyes to the desperate need for an effective form of stress-relief and support for first responders.
The power of meditation: No matter our profession, taking care of our mental health needs to be a priority. For first responders like cops and EMTs, ensuring that their heads are in a healthy place is crucial because each day can bring them face-to-face with another trauma. With 40 years of experience, Kim Colegrove is here to share with readers that there is a viable and practical resource for first responders found in meditation.
A source of hope: In 2017, Kim founded The PauseFirst Project, Mindfulness for First Responders. Kim offers the PauseFirst block of training to organizations across the country. She teaches techniques that help reduce stress, regulate emotion, and improve overall health and well-being. Colegrove's work to bring awareness is a tribute to both her husband and the countless other first responders who struggle with the realities of their jobs.
Readers of Kim Colegrove's Mindfulness for Warriors will find. . .
* Evidence-based practices to help first responders and their families deal with stress * Interviews with first responders who share their stories of overcoming, surviving, and thriving * Colegrove's own raw and intimate story of her husband's troubles and how she continues each day fighting in his memory Readers who have looked for encouragement messages and aid in books like Bulletproof Spirit, Bullets in the Washing Machine, and I Love a Cop (Third Edition) will find a further source of healing in Mindfulness for Warriors .

Kim Colegrove is a veteran meditator and speaker with over 40 years of experience. She is the creator of PAUSE15 Meditation? and Learn to Pause? Mindfulness Training, and the founder of The PauseFirst Project: Mindfulness for First Responders.
Colegrove's expertise in meditation has benefited individuals and corporations across the country, including Garmin International, The National Court Reporters Association, Department of Veterans Affairs, United Way, and others.
In 2014, Kim lost her husband David to suicide, less than three months after he retired from a 30-year law enforcement career. She created The PauseFirst Project to honor David's memory, and to help other first responders cope with stress and trauma.
She partnered with Major Darren Ivey of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department in 2017 and began offering a 4-hour block of mindfulness training to law enforcement professionals and other first responders. The course has been very well-received and Colegrove now speaks at conferences and offers her course to first responder organizations nationwide.
Kim is a contributing writer for In Public Safety, an American Military University (AMU) sponsored website. In August, her In Public Safety article, "My Husband's Suicide: Recognizing Predictors of Police Suicide," was published on PoliceOne online, which boasts over 600,000 subscribers and over 2 million monthly visitors. Previously, Colegrove was a regular contributing writer for Kansas City Health and Wellness magazine.
Colegrove has combined many years of meditation experience with her background in corporate mindfulness and her own personal story of tragedy and loss to create an informative and inspirational book that is a must-read for first responders and their families.
