Sometimes the scars are unseen, Author Tracey Brown uncovers hidden scars in this
life-affirming interview of personal discovery on Women Innovators Radio with Host
A United States Coast Guard Veteran, Tracey Brown held many designations. She wasa rescue swimmer on both small boats and helicopters, a firefighter, navigator, heavyweather surf coxswain, EMT and federal law enforcement agent, to name a few of herduties while at the Small Boat Station Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco Ca. Aftermany lost years from undiagnosed PTSD, Tracey was educated as a Director of
Physical Rehabilitation and has been working for more than twenty years to help clientsget free from physical pain. For the last decade, she has specialized in pain reductionvia scar tissue therapy.
“Rescued to Recovery is a double entendre,” said Tracey Brown describing why she
wrote the book. “When we would go out for rescues in the Coast Guard, most of the
rescues would turn into recoveries of bodies.”
Brown’s experiences in rescue and recovery services is juxtaposed with her understanding of the PTSD that many first responders, military and veterans have related to the internal and external scars.
Rescue to Recovery is a veteran’s perspective of time serviced in the United States
Coast Guard, 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 missions, trainings, 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.
“Writing this book was very healing for me,” she said. “I had done therapy, but actually writing it out and thinking about the process and really taking the time to dive into the stories and to dive into my heart created a lot of healing.”
