Dawn’s personal journey first led her to Yoga and Branches of Wellness 10 years ago. She was looking for a way to deal with stress and a healthier way of life which ultimately opened her up to the art of Reiki. With Dawn’s level of compassion for others, it seemed very natural for her to eventually became a Reiki Master and uses her intuition to help others. As she grew in her understanding and curiosity of holistic healing, she decided to study Thai Massage. She has always had a passion for helping others throughout her life. “I spent 30 years as an emergency dispatcher but always felt like there was so much more I could be doing to help people on a more personal level.” Dawn is also a gifted artist and recently re connected with that part of her. She has been doing some artwork in her spare time as a healthy way to deal with stress. She has also immersed herself into a six day a week fitness routine as well as modifying her eating habits to sustain a much healthier lifestyle. Her adult son is a U.S. Marine stationed in Hawaii. “I miss Nicholas every day but the Marine Corps has been a lifelong passion of his and I take solace in knowing that he is fulfilling that dream.” When she is not working or practicing her arts, Dawn enjoys spending time with her boyfriend of 10 years as well as his two children. She also LOVES spending time with her dogs Igor and Boris. She is clearly passionate in all aspects of her life, (Obvious by the smile permanently plastered on her face), which is evident the first time you meet her.
