Testimonials

I’d recommend her as a nutrition coach to anyone looking to live a healthier life.

Dawn is fantastic!  Her high energy personality combined with a results-oriented approach translates to results – quickly.  She takes a holistic approach to helping you understand nutrition and the implications of what you’re eating – but does so in a very pragmatic way.  Through a weekly review of your Personal Assessment and Photo Food Journal, she offers practical suggestions to help you reach your goals with a very “do this, not that” methodology.  Her suggestions are easy to implement and she’s there throughout the week as a coach and inspiration (keeping you from giving into temptation as you change your eating habits).

In 8 months, I lost over 40-pounds and cut my body fat by 60%.  Her personalized approach has helped me integrate healthy eating into my daily life, while recognizing the challenges of my busy schedule.  Even just a few 1:1 sessions with Dawn helped inspire me to make a number of easy changes that helped me get on the right path

The journey has been extraordinarily helpful.  I think about my knowledge & awareness of food/diet and its impact on my energy – not to mention weight/body fat – and it’s impossible to not see the results of our work together.  For that, THANK YOU!  It’s a knowledge-base that I will carry with me forever!

Dawn is an amazingly awesome nutrition counselor, and has been a critical piece of my health & fitness success.  If you’re serious about making a commitment to healthier living, Dawn is the perfect fit to help you take things to the next level. I’d recommend her as a nutrition coach to anyone looking to live a healthier life.”

THANK you for helping me realize there can be a “NEW” me!

“Thank you for basically showing me how to change my life by changing my eating habits and working with me to set goals, realistic goals that is! I have implemented so many new and GREAT ideas into my daily regime and feel that I am now on the right path to a healthy weight loss and successful life. I have been on diets and health plans for years, but you had new ones that I had never seen or heard of before. From the way to read menu’s, to reading labels, to easy and quick meals, etc., your way of looking at what we put into our bodies helped me realize that once you start changing your bad habits and implanting these “suggestions” they all just become daily habits. Your caring attitude and calls, emails and general care of my well-being made the sessions even more delightful. Thank you for showing me the way to a new and better lifestyle and a new and better me. I wholeheartedly recommend you and Naked Health to anyone seriously contemplating a healthy lifestyle change- they would be equally charged, like I am, should they hire you as their personal consultant. I consider you a consultant and now a friend. THANK you for helping me realize there can be a “NEW” me!”

“Your knowledge and expertise are significant.”

It is apparent to me that your knowledge and expertise are significant. The thoroughness of your paperwork, the materials that you have provided and the amount of time that you spent with them are clearly the reasons for their success. More importantly, it is obvious that you have made a personal investment with both of them. The care and concern that you exhibit for your clients is genuine. As a result, I feel that the passion you have for your work is evident. I have nothing but the highest compliments for you and your program

“Dawn changed my life”

“Before Dawn, I was drinking 5 Cokes a day, eating pizza 5 times a week and, well, eating many other unhealthy things in between…  Dawn helped me understand the science behind what I was doing wrong and worked with me to help me make better choices.  I have to be honest: it took a commitment on my part, but Dawn was incredibly helpful at both educating and supporting the changes I had to make to my diet.  Her passion for what she does is obvious through both her enthusiasm and it clearly worked as I’ve lost over 15 pounds (and kept it off).  Thanks to dawn, I’m healthier and feel so much more energy.  I would enthusiastically recommend Dawn to anyone who’s looking to lead a healthier life!”

“I told her that if she can work her magic on me, she can work it on anyone. And it worked!”

“Not having the time to eat right is not an excuse!  Dawn quickly showed me the err of my ways, and how that misconception was affecting not only my health and weight, but my mood and energy level.  I guess I always knew that to some degree, but it seemed too overwhelming to make the shift.

‘In just a few hours, she was able to reinforce how important this needed shift was, and more importantly for me, was able to break the shift into baby steps. From grocery shopping, to food schedules, to eating out (one of my biggest downfalls!), she gave me golden nuggets to finally make my shift. Nuggets that would help me approach my choices differently, but still allow me some of my vices.

I no longer stop for fast- food on my way home late at night from work. The contents of my grocery cart are much healthier, but still yummy. I can still have the occasional cheese pizza – but now with some fresh ingredients from home. And I can still eat some of my favorite foods when eating out, just in different proportions. It is doable! The only thing that could make it even better is if she would do the grocery shopping and meal preps for me!

Dawn has a gift. She has a natural ability to understand her clients’ challenges and mind sets, and most importantly, how to make her clients embrace the shift. Her enthusiasm for healthy eating is infectious
and from the heart. She really does care. She’s a great cheerleader and I would highly recommend her services, without reservation. I told her that if she can work her magic on me, she can work it on anyone. And it worked!”

“Dawn did a wonderful job advising me”

“Dawn did a wonderful job advising me on my nutrition needs while preparing for the 2011 Arizona Iron Man. Through her advice I was able to fuel an intensive training regimen and continue to reduce my body fat until shortly before the race. She truly knows her stuff and can help you reach your health and wellness objectives. And even become an Iron man if you like! If you want to get fit and enjoy the process while eating more than enough to keep you satisfied I would recommend you give her a call and get her on your team.”

“I feel so comfortable with you and trust you completely”

“Thank you so much for a wonderful evening! I just love getting together with you and learning so much. You have been such a tremendous help for me during my very, very difficult detoxification.

I really like the way you back up everything you say with research and personal experience, & you offer solutions and suggestions to help us get started right away. I feel so comfortable with you and trust you completely. Again, thank you so very, very much.”
