I’m Dawn Marie, an expert Transitional Navigator.
What makes me an expert at transitions? My friend, I have seen my share of unexpected cross roads and plot twists!
I was 28 when my husband of 14 years, walked out on New Years Day with no prior warning.
I was now a single mom of a ten year old with two mortgages.
I went on to remarry a wonderful man. He worked in film & TV and I managed the business. In July of 2014 he was diagnosed with stomach cancer and on September 18, 2014 he died.
I was now a widow, 53, with no job. My son, now 25, was out on his own.
We had only bought our little dream cottage just north of NYC a year before in a location where I had no roots, friends or family.
I enrolled at the, Institute for Integrative Nutrition and became a Wholistic Health & Wellness Coach.
I also became a Certified Yoga Teacher, Certified Radiant Child Yoga Teacher as well as a Kripalu Yoga in the Schools Instructor.
Then, the best thing I never saw coming happened. A message on Face Book from a boy I had gone to high school with. We had kept in touch sporadically over the years and here we were, reconnecting and both single.
We married in an outdoor wedding, in September 2016 on his parent’s property where he and his six siblings had grown up in Ghent, NY. I acquired two amazing bonus boys through our marriage and a huge loving extended family. All of whom I love and adore!
Now, it’s 2018 and I have just completed my training to become a Certified Functional Medicine Coach and have been partnering with doctors to help their patients who are dealing with tick born illnesses, auto immune disorders as well as memory loss & Alzheimer’s.
I’m helping clients find themselves, their voices and reconnect with their innermost desires again so they can live their life to the fullest and feel supported, strong, healthy, connected and beutiful.
My work lights me up, my family fills my soul and I have more than survived all those plot twists – I have thrived!
So let’s work together and I’ll navigate you through your transition. You do not have to stay stuck feeling helpless, you can have control over your life, thrive and choose happiness once more.
I draw from my experiences as well as the tools and resources I developed as I navigated my own transitions.
Always to a place of peace, love and joy.
I can’t wait to meet you!
