After a life changing equus retreat (coaching with horses) in 2010 hosted by Martha Beck and Koelle Simpson, Alissa Gauger, MBA, was inspired to reexamine her life. She enrolled in Martha Beck’s life coaching program and left her 15+ year marketing career because she felt called to help people on a deeper level. Blending together life coaching tools along with her extensive knowledge of Northwestern Mutual has been the recipe for success. She is a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach, a Certified Kolbe Consultant, a Certified Koelle Simpson Equus Coach, and also a Level II Advanced Certified Tension and Trauma Release (TRE) Practitioner. In addition to her coaching services, Gauger works as a marketing and business consultant, writer and speaker. Alissa enjoys spending time with her five goats and seven horses, reading and the outdoors in her free time.
