Hello! And welcome! I’m Dawn and I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled I am that you’re here! As a Master Certified Health Coach I’m passionate about empowering other women to get their groove back, to restore their vitality and thrive, becoming their healthiest self!
To find balance and truly make strides in recovering your health, you need to look holistically at your life and give some love to all aspects of wellness. You can do everything right in regards to eating, but if you don’t move your body, it won’t have the opportunity to flush out the ‘junk’ that causes you to feel the way you do. Eating all the right things and exercising is fantastic, but if you don’t prioritize sleep, your body will still be in a stressed situation as it uses sleep to recharge and heal. So you see, all these components have to go hand in hand. When you first start on your health journey, hearing this can be overwhelming. But know that it’s a process of baby steps that slowly and surely bring your body back to a healthy place.
As someone who has walked down this road, I know first hand how overwhelming it can be. My goal is to walk
alongside you as you begin your journey, supporting and guiding you as you work on the areas that need some love.
Friend, you ARE capable of change and YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Creating a healthy lifestyle means reducing stress, making sleep a priority, getting outside, not smoking, getting your vitamin D levels right, safer beauty and household products and deep breathing … just to name a few.
Adding daily movement to your life helps rid your body of toxins and old cells, keeping them from building up and aggravating symptoms. This is especially vital for those with chronic inflammatory conditions such as RA as it helps keep pain and inflammation at bay.
Focusing on nutrient dense, whole, real foods helps nourish your body, bringing healing to your digestive system, easing your pain and inflammation. As Hippocrates said long ago, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be the food“ – we’re slowly but surely getting back to that notion and seeing incredible results in the process.
Your mindset has the ability to help heal or hinder your health goals. Do you believe in your body’s ability to reach a healthier state? Do you believe YOU can help it get there? Do you trust that food, exercise, lifestyle and mindset make a difference? You can do all the things but if you don’t believe it or BELIEVE in YOURSELF, you’ll continue to have roadblocks in reaching your health goals.
The thought of making any changes completely overwhelms you. You are not alone.
I know exactly how you feel. Where do you even start? Change is hard. But what if you had someone there to help you break it down so it didn’t feel so overwhelming? Someone who’s been there and knows what it takes? Someone who can support you through YOUR journey?
real coaching. science-based research. real results.

You’ll learn so much about who you are and what you’re capable of and I’ll be here to support you through each step of the way.

01 / First
The internet is amazing, isn’t it? With so much information at our fingertips, we can have the answer to any question in seconds. BUT is it an answer you can trust? One blog article says one thing, the next contradicts it. It makes finding reliable information very challenging. My goal is to work with you providing only science-based information. Information you can trust and feel good about applying to your life.

this isn’t a diet, it’s a lifestyle
My mission is to empower you to take charge of your health. We inherently know what we need to do, but often get caught up on the individual steps of how to get there. There is such a focus on food and exercise when you start looking for ways to improve your health and wellbeing. But health and wellness is about so much more. It’s about bringing balance into your life as a whole. We’re not talking about simply eating clean foods for a year then going back to a world of highly processed convenience foods. While food and exercise play a big role, this lifestyle also requires you to look at how you live day-to-day, what you do for self care, how you handle stress, etc. Taking time to uncover all these areas helps you fill the gaps where necessary, allowing you to holistically improve your health.
