The idea for Badass in Heels came about after I was on FBI True, Season 2, Episodes 1 and 2, "Boston Marathon Manhunt," and on interviews aired on CBS and WBZ. Family and friends reached out to me, some not even having known I had been a Special Agent with the FBI. They asked all sorts of questions, but my female friends asked what it had been like to work in the Bureau as a woman. As we chatted, I realized there is so little that is known about the diverse roles women hold in the FBI. What most people know comes from television or movies, which is fantastic, but mainly fiction. As I briefly summarized my Counterterrorism journey with the FBI, one of them exclaimed "Badass!" And I thought, "You know what, Yes! I was badass and there are a lot of badass women in the Bureau."Naturally, being an advocate for women in law enforcement and women in the Bureau, I decided someone needed to introduce the world to extraordinary FBI women Special Agents. Why not me!
Through Badass in Heels, I aim to provide the audience with engaging and thought-provoking content related to women in the FBI. I want to go past all the noise that is currently impacting the FBI's reputation. I want Badass in Heels to be a political-free podcast that is empowering, entertaining, educational and informative. I want to highlight the diversity of roles women Special Agents hold in the FBI, from field agents to bomb technicians, crisis negotiators,firearm instructors, SWAT team members, profilers, women in leadership, and many more. I want these Special Agent stories to also inspire new FBI Agents and young women, who are considering joining the FBI or another law enforcement agency. My mission is to interview extraordinary women and to let their voices introduce you to women Special Agents in the FBI.
