I am a Certified Master Reiki Therapist and Life Alignment Practitioner, an Access Consciousness BARS Practitioner, and an E-RYT 200 (Experienced, Registered Yoga Teacher, 200 hours). I am also an ACE Certified Trainer, a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, and an AFAA Group Fitness Instructor. Through the use of these modalities, I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of people overcome health concerns and live happy, vibrant lives.
While attending Belmont University where I studied both Exercise Science and Music Business, I competed as a figure/body-builder as well as taught Spin, Step, and Weight Training classes at a local YMCA. Those things quickly morphed into a love for personal training. Since that point, I have had the pleasure of training folks from all walks of life, including country music sensations Reba McEntire, JoDee Messina and Jamie O’Neal to name a few.
As time went on, my life grew to include a family of my own, and it wasn’t long before I realized that my world was getting more and more complicated (and stressful.) Yoga became a regular part of my routine and was a life-saver for me. My personal yoga practice cracked my shell wide open and helped me understand the sincere importance of balancing all the aspects that make up Dawn. I began incorporating meditation and other tools for relaxation and balance into my life’s routine and in 2006 I made the decision to became a certified Life Alignment Technique Practitioner as well as a Master Reiki Therapist.
I currently reside in Nashville, TN where I get to work with private holistic clients both in-person and online. I am also a certified CrossFit Coach in the Middle Tennessee area (shout out to CrossFit BNA!) and I do mobility and movement clinics for athletes and sports programs, incorporating my background in Thai Bodywork and Personal Training. And how cool is it that I get to travel with my two daughters and their respective sports and be a part of their growth?! Nashville is an amazing place and I feel incredibly grateful to be surrounded by wonderful music, good friends, and a sweet family in a growing and thriving city. I am constantly humbled by the work I get to do on a daily basis. I love getting to be a part of my client’s experiences and journeys as they work to uncover the best pieces of themselves!
