Described as “the New Dawn" of personal transformation and self-creation, Dawn is one of the most inspiring and refreshing guides of our time. She is a multi-national award-winning author, singer and speaker.
As a result of experiencing a turbulent childhood Dawn was on her own at a very young age. Self-sufficient at only fourteen years old and with no mentorship, Dawn set out to take care of her basic needs. She had to quit school, work full time and enroll herself in the school of life, where she earned “a master’s degree in turning adversity into opportunity”.
Always resourceful and resilient, she held down two jobs to provide the necessities of life - an apartment, food, and clothing. Later, training in what was to be dual major life purposes, creating exceptional results in the natural health and wellness field on one hand, and mentoring a psychology of possibilities and leadership on the other. Dawn was also awarded the Anthony Robbins Life Mastery Award for her contributions in helping feed the homeless and for mentoring women of domestic violence.
Dawn entered the world it seems, destined to overcome tremendous adversity and, against the odds she has truly thrived. Thriving can also partner with despair, isolation, grief, and forgiveness. These are real, raw and naturally human feelings we so often do not see or share with others, but these emotions are real life. Dawn believes there is an over emphasis on "achievement" in today's world and this is why she created, “The Real Work”, an open and honest exploration into the journey of self-creation. The crossing over and through the thresholds of life, painful as they may be, liberation can always be found. Dawn's passion, mission and purpose is to help others live their bold, brave and beautiful life. Awakening and expressing our true nature is where real fulfillment is found.
Dawn's greatest teacher was and still remains, the spirit of nature. She listens to the trees, the winds, the waters, the skies, her dog Milo, the horses and the land. All her life Dawn has been an observer and student of nature's guidance. Nature is Dawn's spiritual playground of possibilities, giving her insights to the heartbeat of her own drum.
You'll read her writing, singing and speaking about topics such as, "our true nature" or "embracing and awakening the fires of life". Based on Dawn’s life and passion in guiding others, it seems appropriate Dawn was given the Spirit name, "Fireheart", by the elders who guided her first vision quest. Life according to Dawn is to live a brave, bold and beautiful one.
Caring, wise and compassionate, Dawn is part unicorn, part teddy bear and definitely part lioness. After 25 years as a mentor and trainer, Dawn now adds her uplifting and inspiring music to her message.
"You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world."
"May your heart be brave, your actions be bold and your spirit be free. Remove the wait or wonder...let's get this Fire started!"

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."
