"Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us."--Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

Testimony: Health Coaching
Leah from Bozeman, MT--"Dawn has been such a wonderful individual to work with during my healing journey. I am very lucky we crossed paths, as I am surprised yet thankful at how beneficial working with a health coach was in my recovery. Dawn helped provide me with guidance to meaningful changes to my overall health and in my daily life, which I still use each day. I look back 6 months to when I started, and I don’t recognize that person, as I have made so many positive changes to mine and my family’s life after working with Dawn.
I would describe Dawn as a very kind and genuine person. I appreciate how much time and dedication she invested in my journey. Dawn did a great job making the process unique to what my needs were and set goals that were achievable yet challenging for me to attain."
From Cathy in Bozeman MT-- "Dawn was able to help me work toward my goals by encouraging me throughout the eight weeks we worked together. She had dietary knowledge that was very helpful. Dawn challenged me to be more in tune with my body so I could get the maximum benefit from my program. I had to be mindful of stress, fatigue, and dedicated to my elimination diet. She would ask me questions that would make me realize my progress. The most significant overall change I’ve noticed is that I will continue to eat a lot cleaner as a new way of life. Being gluten free isn’t as daunting as I originally thought. I would recommend Dawn to anyone who has to go through any dietary restrictions for knowledge and support."
