Prior to chronic pain and managing military family life, Lindsay worked in healthcare data analysis and completed a B.A. in Finance and a Masters in Healthcare Administration.  She  has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (a connective tissue disorder) that nearly sidelined her when she wanted most to be present for her newborn. Having just moved across the country for her husband’s Navy deployment, her pain and stress seemed to feed off each other. Finding support and tools inspired her to help others in the same position, and gaining certification through TCC®U is allowing her to do just that. She is amazed by the impactful work coaches do to help clients manage complicated pain. Lindsay lives in Wisconsin with her two young boys and husband, where she enjoys nature, scrapbooking, and family time.

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.
