Chase completed his undergraduate work with a degree in business administration from Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, and then from Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, with a Masters Degree in Psychology Counseling in 2012.
He spent a total of four years in West Palm Beach, Florida, working in The Wellington Retreat, a dual diagnosis rehabilitation center specializing in treatment of clients suffering from mental illness and addictions.

Chase further worked with a Neurologist on staff at the Wellington Retreat and was trained and certified as a biofeedback practitioner and EEG (electroencephalography) analyst for two years.
