Alice

Coach, Coach Trainer

Alice came to Take Courage Coaching™ 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 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.

Dee Emmerson

Dee is a writer who puts her word-smithing and communications to work for Take Courage Coaching™  writing website and brochure copy, lessons, and newsletters. This is what she considers the “perfect job”—writing and sharing life-saving skills with those in chronic pain—with time around the edges to be her kitties’ human, tend flowers, sew or crochet, clean the house (micro-manage the Roomba), or help a neighbor. She lives in Colorado with her hubby of 40 years and counting.
