Sep 28

Dawn Renee is a pioneer of holistic caregiving complemented by integrated practices utilizing herbal medicine, Ayurveda, energy work with emotional guidance.

The founder of Traveling Caregivers, a grassroots hope-faith based organization, Dawn is bridging the gap between the balance of life while navigating a multitude of caregiving concerns with health, a holistic lifestyle, administration, and advocacy. Over the past decade, she has been instrumental in helping countless individuals and dogs reclaim their health and lives on their own terms, in their own way.

As a live-in holistic caregiver and health coach for almost 15 years. She has devoted the last 5 years to caring for a friend with stage 4 ALS who is now a quadriplegic, on a ventilator, feeding tube, and catheter, requiring 24/7 care and support. Realizing caregiving for others can easily take you away from yourself, it ignited a new passion and desire to help other caregivers with their journey.

As a talented songstress, she has appeared on multiple stages in venues across the country as an actor, solo performer, speaker, and as the husband and wife music duo, Dawn Loves Nash. Through their partnership, they have witnessed first hand how music is the universal language of love and a true pathway to transformational healing.
