Q&A with the FRC Team: Kathi Kelly, Coach Instructor

We’ve been connecting and building for a while and things are starting to get big, Bigger, HUGE! We’d better start introducing ourselves! We are First Responder Coaching, first responders and family members who understand the job, the stress, the challenges, and the heartaches of first responder life. You probably knew that, but did you know who’s behind this whole endeavor? We’re going to throw a bio out every couple days to introduce the admin team. Everyone’s important to making this ship sail, so let’s continue introducing our leadership team.

Today, we’ll highlight:

Kathi Kelly

What’s your role here at FRC?

Coach Instructor

What’s your connection to first responder life?

I am the child of a first responder, a first responder myself, and a spouse of a recently retired first responder. My dad was a firefighter and is currently still a fire and police chaplain. I was on the dive team as tender for a few years. My husband is a retired capitol police lieutenant.

What’s your experience with coaching?

I came into coaching with FRC after doing peer support with spouses. I met Jen through that work and got involved in the coaching program.

How did your journey bring you to FRC?

After I got involved with coaching through FRC, Jen asked me to be one of the instructors as my main profession is teaching. It’s my wheelhouse and background.

What are hopes and aspirations as an FRC team member?

For me, I want to help build a strong a program for FRC, build a culture or training, and continue the development of coaching skills and abilities.
