Kia Baker is the creator and host of The Female Veterans Podcast. The goal of the podcast is to give female veterans a platform to share their real stories, good or bad, while changing the prevailing perception the veterans are men. After serving in the US Navy, she spent 20 years helping other veterans make the transition from active duty to civilian life. Her passion for empowering women and veterans inspired her to broaden her reach by connecting with organizations that advocate for female veterans. Her mission is to bring attention to the disparity between male and female veterans, shine a light on female veteran stories, help homeless female veterans and advocate for alternative therapies for sick and suffering veterans. Kia holds an MBA in Finance and Accounting and is also an alumni of the Milton Hershey School. Kia is proudly affiliated with Arras, and Mob Nation, two organizations that also empower women. She also works closely with Passageways LTD, a foundation that helps homeless veterans transition back to thriving in life. In addition she is currently founding Artemisia, based in the Portland,Oregon area. An organization aimed to allow her to help homeless female veterans. Kia is a graduate from The London Real Academy and now coaches rapid transformation courses for the Academy and is writing her first book, a fictional novel based on her military service.
