The IDEA Leaders

Kerry Mensior

Kerry is the face of change in how First Responders communicate with their Community. 

Rapid Rapport for Rapid Responders is the revolutionary set of tools Kerry has curated to allow First Responders to quickly develop rapport, effectively communicate, de-escalate and negotiate with people in all situations, including those in emotional crisis.

Diane Halfman

It was never Diane's plan to walk the streets and become a prostitute, yet alone get involved with vicious gangs and narcotics, but her life choices put her in grave circumstances. 

Diane worked Patrol and Undercover for the San Diego Police Department in Gangs and Vice.

Diane understands fear and survival instincts—she lived them and knows what it takes to find your grit, perseverance and power to push through any challenge.  

After being medically retired from the police department as a result of a training accident, Diane took her years of experience, along with her Masters in Human Resources Management and Certification as a Life Coach, to pioneer the creation of her own company.

Beautiful San Diego!

There are few places in the country as reliable for warm, sunny weather and beautiful beaches as San Diego. The country's eighth largest city has long been popular for family attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Legoland and SeaWorld, plus great fish tacos!
