I Need Blue
A Survivor's Story
Jennifer Lee is the creator and host of the “I Need Blue” podcast that she started in May 2020 based on her experience of surviving an armed robbery and abduction. As a result, Jen decided to start a platform for other survivors of life events to share their stories. For some, sharing becomes part of their healing journey.
Jen partners with local, national, and international organizations and non-profits to put a spotlight on the ways they help others. It is her way of giving back to her community, and it provides resources for those listening who may not know where to go or what to do.
When asked, "Jen how did you escape?" She replied, "We didn't. We were rescued by law enforcement." I Need Blue also focuses on the unique traumas faced by first responders.
Jen is passionate about creating space for survivors where they feel they: Belong, are Loved, Understood and Empowered! (BLUE) 😊
