Susan is an “explorer”—traveller, hiker, kayaker—who lives in Wisconsin with her husband and a red and blue betta fish named Dexter. And she's a Green Bay Packer fan, of course. After 20+ years in healthcare administration and a medical scare, Susan decided coaching would allow her to work with people one-on-one.  The skills she’s gathered have led her into mentoring, health and wellness programs, research on coaching, in-person coaching; and now, telephonic coaching with Take Courage Coaching.™  She had gained coaching certifications and advanced instruction before becoming a Take Courage Coaching™ Certified Pain Management Coach.  Susan's focus in pain management is hope, gratitude, self-responsibility, and helping others.
