degrees in Marketing, Communications & Business—Alice came to Take Courage CoachingTM as a client. Despite her workaday skills in organization and event planning, her pain was getting the best of her and turning life into a real drag. Alice was motivated to improve, and made such great progress with her coach that before graduating she trained and ran a 5k. The experiences of pulling herself out of pain’s grasp awakened a desire to help others, and Alice entered the Coach Training program. She is now a Coach and TCCU faculty member, and still uses her favorite pain management tool, diaphragmatic breathing, because of its simplicity and effectiveness. She lives in Tennessee with her miscellaneous pack of rescued fur babies, and enjoys quite a list of hobbies and interests: photography, guitar and ukulele, writing, typography, antiques, gardening and kayaking.
