Debbie’s path to Cour Training took her from a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Physiology to various careers in the medical field modalities such as Cardiology, GI and Genetic Biotech. Her interests took her into the the business sector working for Fortune 500 companies such as HP, Philips, Siemens and Exact Sciences.
She spent 30 years working in Western Medicine and her extreme health issues made it clear that Western Medicine didn’t have all the answers. She understood that much of her healing had to come from within. She realized that her “biography was her biology”. She became “well” as a result of using modalities like mindfulness, meditation, and yoga. She has always been a natural coach and found herself inspired to share everything she has learned.
