Author Tracee Andrews, sits down with PCC coach and Essential Impact founding partner Dave Busse for a one-on-one coaching session. Dave helps Tracee focus and navigate through some of the challenges of publishing her book, Whispers on the Ocean, which tells the heart-wrenching story of how institutionalized bigotry has shaped Canada’s relationship with its First Nations Peoples. After the session, our host Marj Busse, MCC, joins in to conduct a detailed debrief of Dave’s coaching.
Tracee Andrews (The Coachee)
Born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia, Tracee graduated from the Justice Institute of BC’s Paramedic Academy and spent the majority of her fifteen-year medical career working in the challenging environment of Vancouver’s infamous Downtown Eastside. A career-ending injury sent her back to university where she focused on psychology and the First Nations studies that later inspired her first novel. Following this she worked as a traumatic stress counsellor and was a founding director of the Canadian Foundation for Trauma Research and Education. Tracee’s experience as a veteran first-responder in Canada’s poorest neighbourhood, coupled with her understanding of traumatic stress, gave her a unique perspective to write Whispers on the Ocean.
