Tina Leigh McDonald has a chronic pain condition but she managed in her busy corporate job successfully for many years. But when a car accident caused her condition to worsen and forced her to resign she realised that part of her recovery and rehabilitation was going to mean returning to work in a way that she could manage but that still allowed her to support people in the way that she loved.
She established her business Avalanche coaching and now she splits her time providing leadership and soft skills training to businesses and also supports 16 to 24 year olds with career guidance helping them to transfer from school into apprenticeships, university or work.
She says having a chronic pain condition limits the time she can put into her business but her passion for what she does helps her to continue with a purpose she believes in and manage her condition too.
