“Our Food Should Be Our Medicine & Our Medicine Should Be Our Food”

Hey there! I'm Dawn. 

As a certified Health Coach, I help my clients break free from food allergies, food shaming, and yo-yo dieting. We work together to improve their stress levels, sleep habits, and nutritional dietary lifestyle.

I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods I strive to co-create completely personalized actions based on goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources. I also received my Double Raw Food Certification from the Creative Health Institute and Alyissa Cohen Raw Food Certification in 2010.

I have written for Women's Lifestyle Magazine and am a doTERRA Essential Oil Advocate. Owner of Lemuria Yoga Studio.

I am a woman who has walked her journey breadcrumb by breadcrumb (gluten-free, of course). A carpal tunnel diagnosis and the pain that followed is what initially brought me to yoga. Avoiding surgery was my goal, and I did it by changing my lifestyle (after being misdiagnosed and also finding out I was Celiac). I focused on holistic health, including my yoga practice and plant-based nutrition. Now thriving twenty years later, I’m a certified raw food chef, health coach, and yoga instructor.

Over these years, I’ve rediscovered the beauty of women; their beauty, strength, and intelligence. I believe everyone can encompass their inner beauty, health, and wellness if they choose.


My gypsy, free-spirited soul has led me to where I am today. In my off time, you can find me with my family, hiking, glamping, gardening, or walking my dogs. Pretty much anything outdoors when the weather allows. I have great respect for nature, plants, crystals, beauty, and deep meaningful conversations with others. I hold gratitude for anyone or anything that makes me feel alive, and I am looking forward to having you on this journey with me.

Who is this for + benefits

My expertise is in supporting women who are feeling trapped in their bodies and experiencing weight gain and the loss of their vim and vigor. My clients are typically 30+ years old tired of yo-yo dieting and fed up with spending ridiculous amounts of money on fad diets that don't provide lasting results. The key to overcoming this obstacle is understanding a few principles that I refer to as the Three Pillars of Nourishment. 
Let me explain what that means and the meaning behind Encompassing You: 
Nourishment means: The elements necessary for encouraging growth, good health, and well being. 
Pillar one: Plant-based Nourishment. I truly believe that food is the primary link to most all health concerns and health crisis'. Our bodies are capable of healing themselves with the correct plant based nutrition.
Pillar two: Soul Nourishment. I embrace the concept of health from our inside out. It's not only what's on our plate, but also what we feed our mind, and how we balance lifestyle and stress. 
Pillar three: Physical Nourishment. By simply moving your body, you can improve your mental health, mood fluctuations, and flexibility. Exercise can reduce anxiety by making your brain less reactive to stressful situations and assist you in finding balance. 

Encpompassing You is a lifestyle brand where I incorporate all three of these pillars into your life at your own pace. 

Since you are reading this, it probably means you have health and wellness on your mind! Food is medicine when we use it to enrich our health rather than just for social and emotional comfort. Please contact me, I would love to assist you on your new health journey. 

Today I am a Certified Heath Coach from the Institute if Integrated Nutrition, Double Certified Raw Food Chef from the Creative Health Institute, and a Certified Yoga instructor and Reiki Practitioner.  I am passionate about teaching people how to reach elevated health with plant based nutrition (meat eaters welcome), nourishment to the soul,  and embracing the power of movement.
