I found Officer O’Connell to be an amazingly inspiring woman.                ~ Alyssa, CNM Student


After hearing about this life altering situation and what she was able to overcome, it is truly a testament to “mindset for survival.” Proud to know and work with her. ​ ~ Trish Hoffman, Retired Police Lieutenant/Founder of Women Against Crime


Mira’s astonishing story of survival is a true inspiration and the epitome of a woman’s inner strength – A presentation that is a “must see” for ladies of all ages.  ​ ~ Darren Irwin, Owner Pale Horse Defense, LLC

Mira’s combination of experience, knowledge, and passion made her the perfect choice to teach Habitat for Humanity’s recent class on personal home safety. Everyone walked away feeling motivated to improve their home safety.
