Chasing A Life Of Meaning
Terry Chase is an athlete. And that mindset has defined her life.
Riding her bicycle one sunny spring day in Colorado, Terry came to a turn. Behind her was a large SUV that collided with her, then fled the scene. Terry was left sprawled on the pavement with a broken back. Her beloved red bicycle lay mangled on the road.
Extensive rehab and sheer grit helped Terry through unspeakable lows. Her orientation as an athlete helped provide the mental stamina to weather the unthinkable. And ultimately, nothing stopped her. Terry went on to earn three graduate degrees in Nursing (ND), Exercise Science (MA) and Spiritual Psychology (MA) with additional certifications in communication, teaching, and equine-assisted learning.
From wheel chair tennis to horseback riding to water skiing, Terry tells people to
“Live a big life.”
And she has spent over 30 years helping people live their best life.
“My life has grown so much, I feel so fortunate.”
Terry’s book Spoke by Spoke: How a Broken Back and a Broken Bike Led to a WholeHearted Life details her journey through her incredible lows as well as times of amazing accomplishment.
Her perseverance and resilience will inspire you.
