"My intention is to facilitate personal empowerment through mindfulness so you can live a happier and more fulfilling life." - Dawn
Dawn's passion is to guide others to personal empowerment. Having spent most of her early years as a "people-pleaser", she found herself in many codependent relationships. Dawn has always been a helper and a nurturer, and although it served her well in many aspects of her life, it also made her open to being over-empathetic and taking on the troubles and pain of others. As a result, for the past 10 years she has been learning and implementing mindfulness techniques and tools into her daily life to improve her own self-confidence and self-connection. Professionally, after earning her Master of Music degree in vocal performance, Dawn got a job in sales at a National Print Music company while pursuing her singing career. After a few years in the corporate world, Dawn decided to teach voice lessons as it would provide her more flexibility for performing. Along with teaching voice and performing, she also ran a non-profit opera company called Milwaukee Opera Theatre, and went back to school and attained her teaching certification for general and choral music. Dawn taught middle school choir for 3 years. In 2012, she became certified as a Life Coach. Dawn utilizes over 20 years of experience as a singing coach, in which she facilitates the use of personal empowerment tools to assist her students in accessing their authentic voice. Dawn also uses her life experiences, her 25-year marriage, and her experience as a Mom of two teenagers who deal with the stress and anxiety issues so prevalent in our current culture, to inform her coaching practice. Her unique skills allow her to provide her clients with mindfulness tools they can use every day to find peace, fulfillment, and happiness. Dawn welcomes both teenage and adult clients.
