Alice came to Take Courage Coaching® as a client. Despite her degrees in marketing, communications and business, plus 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 still uses her favorite pain management tools as a TCC® Coach, instructor, and Marketing/Development Manager: 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.
