Kim Colegrove
Navigating Resilience: How to rebuild your inner reserves and find your way to wellbeing

Kim Colegrove lost her husband to suicide less than three months after he retired from a 30-year law enforcement career. Kim created Pause First Academy to help other first responders, so their families will never have to experience what she and her family endured. She is the author of Mindfulness for Warriors: Empowering First Responders to Reduce Stress and Build Resilience, and the upcoming book titled Wellness, Warrior-Style: Empowering veterans and first responders to heal trauma and navigate resilience.


Kim is an experienced keynote speaker, and in 2022 she was awarded the Mid-America CIT (Critical Incident Team) Teacher of the Year award. She previously taught mindfulness in corporate settings such as Garmin International, United Way, Department of Veterans Affairs, and The National Court Reporters Association. After her husband’s death, Kim turned her attention to helping warriors learn how to cope with stress and trauma.
