Yvette McDowell is a former fire-fighter paramedic and a retired Emmy Award Winning Assistant City Prosecutor whose encore career as a keynote speaker and workshop leader is to change the game for the better for female first responders from Pasadena to San Diego to Seattle and to Police and Firefighting Academies everywhere.
Yvette’s mission to support female first responders comes from her own personal experiences. Spending nearly two decades in the emergency medical field proved to be some of the most exciting times in her life. During that period in her life, she began dealing with self-discovery to deepen the meaning of who she really was.
Yvette’s life-long personal development-growth lead her to a new career focus. She enrolled in law school and became a city prosecutor continuing to work closely with female police officers. Her assignment with the city prosecutor’s gang program resulted in her innovative concept called, “Conversation Peace” to be turned into a video documentary with a collaborative effort with other city representatives, leading to an Emmy Award.
Retiring after 3 decades of public service, Yvette realized that she really loved helping female first responders and created her coaching and speaking services to support them to stand confident and lead in their feminine power..
