This week I chat with Shawna Mayo — firefighter, professional snowboarder, and personal trainer! Shawna is a long-time EPIC ambassador, and recently her profession as a firefighter hit close to home for the EPIC team. One of our dear friends from the Savory Institute, Chris Kerston, lost his home in the deadly Camp Fire, a fire that Shawna actually helped battle. During our conversation, Shawna and I discuss...
- her experience fighting the Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history.
- a day in the life of a firefighter and the strict rules and routines she practices to ensure that she and her team are ready for the unknown.
- the challenges of being a female firefighter and her journey to firefighting and pro snowboarding.
WARNING: This week’s episode features some graphic details of what Shawna witnessed while fighting the Camp Fire, and some may find these upsetting.
For this week’s INSIDE EPIC, we talk morning routines and how you can win an EPIC Rise & Grind insulated camp mug! I also share an insider hint on an upcoming new product launch.
