When we reflect back on our life’s journey, there are certain people that hold a special place in our hearts because they have brought out the best in us. For me, Dawn is one of those people. When I first met her, I could sense her deep commitment to helping women find their purpose and power, with compassion and empathy.
We started with one-on-one coaching, which proved invaluable. We explored the past, but always ended up in the present moment. And eventually, we were reimagining the future. We would often weave in and out of my personal and professional paths, which have been intimately intertwined. I could feel both the gravity and the levity of the work. Transformative is the best way to describe it.
I moved on to a group coaching environment and loved interacting with like-minded, strong, successful women in such a safe space. The timing just happened to span the global pandemic and reckoning of racial injustice, which encouraged a remarkable level of trust within our group and allowed for powerful conversations around the pressures we were facing. I will forever be grateful to these women for their grace and support during such turbulent times.
