DAWN TAYLOR, owner of The Taylor Way, is a “Hope Giver. Ass Kicker.” life coach who offers her clients “A Safe Place to Land” as she passionately helps them to find their worth, learn to live and to love themselves. Having struggled with gut wrenching depression, a broken back, sexual abuse by an uncle (coupled with a lack of belief from her family), a severe eating disorder, attempted suicide and a brain aneurysm which affected her memory, appearance and health – all before she was 18 years old – Dawn learned to become a fighter and a survivor. She then went on to deal with infertility, loss of identity in who she was and who she thought she should be. Through an incredible strength, an insane amount of hope, a belief in herself and a stubbornness that would have made her hard to raise, she has fought to become the woman she is today: A successful business owner, coach, wife and volunteer to the hurt. Her deepest desire is to turn everyone she meets into their own rockstar through her strategy based coaching practice. Dawn is an ass kicker, and a hope giver who just loves people.
MELISSA PHILLIPOFF, came to Every Woman Empowered in the last year and has been on the road to personal growth her whole life. She has found that this group has given her lots of support to grow. Melissa is an avid reader and is using this on her journey of self discovery and takes things she learns and applies them to her life and tries to help others. Melissa has a deep desire to connect with people and loves to help whether it be professionally or personal. She enjoys being involved in the community and volunteers with Catholic social services. Throughout her journey she has developed a sense of confidence with helping others and continues on this path.
KELLY FALARDEAU, is a burn survivor since the age of two-years-old on 75% of her body and constantly struggled with her self-worth and confidence. She found a way to go from near-death to success; from the ugly scar-faced girl to the Top 10 Most Powerful and Influential Speaker, Fierce Woman of the Year, an International Best-Selling Author (4x), recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and most recently a YWCA Woman of Distinction. She has also travelled to Africa twice to help the burn survivors recover from their tragic injuries and recently the producers of the Today Show and Dr Oz show are considering her to be an expert on their show. You have to ask yourself how? How did a burn survivor who constantly struggled with rejection, staring and teasing burst through all the negativity in her life to succeed? You have to hear her speak or read her books to learn the stories of how she did it.
