Training & Speaker  Services

Dawn is a dynamic motivational speaker and trainer who inspires transformational changes in both individuals and systems. Her philosophy of "When we raise the health and wellness of one person, we raise the health and wellness of the community as a whole" was formed from the adversities she experienced in her youth and early adulthood, combined with her experience as a Nurse Practitioner. During her life Dawn has felt first-hand, the barriers to seeking respectful, competent care and what it means to be given negative labels that can further impact one's health and wellness. 

In both trainings, and speaking events, Dawn creates a transformational experience that empowers individuals as well as systems into the action of change. She is recognized as a fierce health equity advocate, leader, compassionate healthcare provider, and published writer. 

Dawn tailors her trainings and speaking engagements to fit the needs of each group to help attendees feel more passionate about their impact, and to be inspired to be change agents of their own health and wellness, and the health and wellness of their communities. 

Speaker and Training topics: The Importance of nature connections for improved health, EcoRecovery for women in recovery from addictions,  Overcoming adversity, patient engagement, person first approach, sustainable quality outcomes in clinical settings, team building.
