Episode 90: Bay LeBlanc Quiney
This week on the show, Bay LeBlanc Quiney joins me to talk about her family history, why she became a police officer and why she didn’t continue, building relationships, and suspending disbelief.
I also shared how tough these couple of days but have felt the support from people around me. I also talked about how we can have an extraordinary life but can still feel not being good enough.

- Reasons she did not stay as a police officer
- How her experience as a police officer for a short period of time changed her perspectives
- Realising that as a coach, she is doing the same work as a police officer but the difference is that the clients she serves as a coach do want change and help
- How children relate to police officers
- Bay’s relationship with her family
- Sometimes, the best way to be in family is to be away or have some space away from family
