About the Guests: 

Dawn Phoenix

Dawn was born in Connecticut but lives in Ohio today. A multi-passionate entrepreneur, she holds certifications in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Animal communication, and Energy Medicine as well as a Master of Teaching degree. She’s also an International Best-Selling Author with 4 titles out currently. 

Dawn has been working in the holistic healing space since 2014 after a life-changing experience during a dog’s euthanasia. Her healing practice first included the Healing Touch energy medicine modality, and a year later Healing Touch for Animals. Desiring a closer connection to the animals she was working with and to help people avoid the heartbreak she endured after the loss of her own chronically ill dog, Dawn became a Certified Animal Communicator.  

Dawn works with clients who wish to understand their animal companions better. As an Animal Communicator, she educates people about their animal physical, emotional, and mental health, desires, and behaviors from the animal’s point of view. Animal Communicators also support people whose animal companions are nearing the end of their life to understand what they can do to help their friend have a dignified, smooth transition. Dawn also teaches people to remember their own innate ability to communicate with animals.  

An International Best-Selling Author, she wrote her children’s book The Star Horses of Corolla in 2019, living on the beach in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. While working in the tourism industry, Dawn frequently encountered tourists who would ask where the horses living on the beaches originally came from. No one quite knew the answer, so they would just guess. She decided to ask the horses themselves and included their story in her book.  

Since then, her Star Horse collection has grown to include a children’s coloring book, a 52- week guided journal, and an adult mandala coloring book as a collaboration with her friend and intuitive artist Regyna Curtis. 

Her chapter entitled “Creativity is the Language of the Soul” is included in the internationally best-selling multi-author book Creativity Is Whatever You Want It To Be. Dawn has been a speaker on summits, podcasts, and her own and others’ YouTube channels inspiring people to awaken to their own divine potential and educating them on the possibilities that exist outside the everyday box.
