"My name is Shalee. I have 2 beautiful daughters, Jaxon (21) and Reiss (19). From an early age, I knew I wanted to be a firefighter and help people. I applied at 18, but they said I needed more life experience. I kept working at Safeway and started my family.

When I turned 30, I decided I had nothing to lose and applied for my dream job. I was so afraid of not making it, but I knew I had to try. The interview, workouts and prep with 2 small kids was not easy. My 1st year of the job was extremely challenging.

Hey twitter.

Request from Molly age 4.
When she grows up she wants to drive a fire truck but she said she has never seen a lady drive a fire truck before.

Can you help me out with all you fabulous female firefighters?

Thank you everyone. I will have a very happy little girl in the morning. I should have really used this pic 🙈
This was her nursery fun day in June.
We have some incredible women doing incredible things. 💪
1/2 Wow. We woke up this morning completely blown away by the response. We sat over breakfast and looked at all the pics and she was blown away by each one.
"So many strong ladies Mammy"
She especially likes the rainbow fire trucks.
