 Hi, I'm Dawn.

Experienced. Engaging. Empowering.

As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has--or ever will have--

something inside that is unique to all time.  Fred Rogers

Whatever your coaching focus and goals, Dawn begins coaching you with a deep trust that you are a wonderful, unique, and creative person worthy of unconditional love and acceptance..


Dawn understands that each human being regularly experiences disempowerment in the midst of life's messiness. Disempowerment is a part of what it means to be human.


Dawn believes in the worth, dignity, and creativity in each human being.  She envisions you and every human being fully empowered, authentically YOU, and meaningfully connected with God, all parts of yourself, others and the world around you.


She believes that you are able to discover and rediscover what self-empowers you through all of life's beauty and hardships. You have a purpose, your own YES to life.


Background & Experience

Dawn has been trained and certified through the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), one of the first established Coach training schools. The Co-Active Coach training model has stood the test of time and combines with her years of coaching, facilitating, and speaking experience through faith-based non-profits. She is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF).


Through our coaching Dawn reminds me that I have the power to make changes in my life. She guides me towards healthy living and pushes me to be curious about paths I wouldn’t otherwise notice. She empowers me to be confidently authentic. I highly recommend Dawn as an empowerment coach.



This pandemic has taken a toll on me. I was set on an emotional roller coaster and my family had to deal with the brunt of it. It wasn’t fair to them and it was a daily challenge for me.
Shortly thereafter, Dawn at YesToLife Coaching was recommended to me.
Dawn offered me her listening, powerful questions, and amazing guided visualizations to center myself and help me discover what life values bring comfort and beauty to my world. I experienced her coaching regularly for over six months and every session left me feeling refreshed and renewed. I have learned and experienced a number of tools from Dawn to ground myself and live intentionally. She has walked me through every step at a pace that I set for every session. I have never been more aware of myself and my needs before. It has really been an incredible experience and I would wholly recommend her coaching services to anyone.



Working with Dawn and YesToLife Coaching has been a most profound experience for me--one that will benefit me for the rest of my life. Dawn has keen insight and extraordinary listening skills. Her calm demeanor put me at ease right from the start and enabled me to open up to her in ways I had never been able to do with anyone else. After 10 coaching sessions with Dawn, I have been able to overcome some lingering issues and move forward with courage and determination. Dawn's caring nature and authentic personality lends itself beautifully to the art of coaching. My investment was life-changing!
