Hi! I’m Dawn Fernandez. I love to cook and share healthy food, teach about holistic living and believe that we each have the power to create the life of our dreams.
Transforming yourself into a healthy, strong vibrant woman doesn’t mean giving up all the fun or setting limitations that feel like a prison sentence. It’s quite the opposite! It’s about nourishing your body, mind and spirit, connecting to your intuition and moving from a place of surviving to thriving.
Within the span of four years, I quit my job, my children finished college and moved out of state, my husband was diagnosed with cancer and I experienced the darkest of days. I felt fearful, depressed and lost. I was experiencing fatigue, my body ached and I was miserable. Everyday I was asking myself, where did my life go? Where did I go? Who am I? What now? How can I get my sparkle back? How can I feel healthy, strong and vibrant? How can I feel my best? What work can I do that feeds my soul and makes and impact? How can I connect and develop meaningful relationships with other women who feel the same way? How can I express my creativity?
Then it happened, the little voice inside said “there is more.” That is now what I refer to as my mid-life awakening. I took a leap of faith and embarked on a journey of self discovery and changed my entire life.
Move the clock forward,….. I became a Certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Shortly thereafter I was introduced to the benefits of essential oils and began sharing my passion as a Wellness Educator with Young Living and am now supporting and guiding others on their own Holistic Living Journey!
I started with nutrition. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer we became aware of the role diet, nutrition and lifestyle play in our immune response. I began experimenting with recipes adding in more whole foods, I started doing yoga and meditation and recognized the power our thoughts have on our well-being. He is 8 years cancer free and thriving. I am half the size I was, I feel healthy, strong and vibrant. I got my sparkle back and I am creating the life I want. I’m keeping it real, I’m not afraid to be vulnerable; I’ve done the work and know what it takes. I am here to help you get your sparkle back and shine even brighter. I am here to guide you on the path of transformation and empower you to thrive. I invite you on this journey of becoming an awakened woman who feels good about who she is again.
