Rescue to Recovery is a Veteran’s perspective of not only time service in the United States Coast Guard but more so, the years after and navigating the enigma of post-traumatic stress. This is a book written by a veteran and her personal challenges while coming to terms with and understand her inability to engage in day-to-day activities as others did. It is a reflection of work as a physiotherapist, CG missions, training, and skewed understandings of post-traumatic stress. This is not just for veterans, it is for the helpers, healers, heroes, and warriors of all walks. Those that feel the need to stay strong when everything feels like it is falling apart.
Tracey is also co-author of the bestseller Women Who BossUp: Secrets From Women Who Are Owning Their Health and Wellness For A Lifestyle They Love which profiles women who have broken the mold to achieve, overcome difficulties, or inspire change through the relentless endeavor. Hailing from across the globe, diverse walks of life, and varied disciplines.
