Janice Branson, Solopreneur
I had wanted a color analysis for a long time. There have been so many times I have worn clothes that are adorable, but I didn’t necessarily feel good in them. After having my color analysis done by Dawn, I now know why I have a lot of clothing in my wardrobe that are not “my” colors.
After taking a photo of me, Dawn spent time and explained how specific colors are not appealing while others look very good. She used the image to place colors next to it and experiment. Some colors may wash me out and make me look tired, while others made my eyes pop and my complexion radiant. The colors of a wardrobe can transform a person and make them feel confident. If we pay attention to and care about what colors we wear, it can help our mood and help us feel better about ourselves.
I am happy to have a color palette that will make my wardrobe go from dull to bright and fun. Dawn’s color analysis and her expertise have helped me feel more comfortable in what I am wearing. I no longer have to guess if a color looks good on me. It makes shopping so much easier and more fun!
I met Dawn during a transitional period in my life. I had recently moved, and while I had made a physical change, I was emotionally stuck. I realized I held onto many personal and material items that no longer served me but was unable to let these things go. Working with Dawn, I found her to be very supportive and respectful of what I was going through at this time. She was able to help me let go of things that no longer served me, both materialistic and emotionally.
Dawn worked with me on my personal style, clothing choices, and Core Passion codes. I discovered what drives me to be who I am, which validated what I already knew about myself. Being able to let go of things that no longer served me was very liberating and her support encouraged me to move along to continue to discover who I am.
I am allowing my inner courage to guide me to my purpose and passion in life instead of living in fear of the unknown. I am not focused on my strengths and acknowledge my challenges but no longer allow fear to keep me moving forward.
Dawn gave me the space to be me and my confidence has now been restored. I now feel aligned mentally, no longer afraid to be the best version of me. Working with Dawn was a great experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone desiring change to become the best version of oneself.

“I was thrilled to update my color analysis with Dawn. It has been over ten years since my last one and my colors sure have changed. It was enlightening to find out from Dawn that our color charts become more muted and softer as we age. Dawn shared terrific information with me regarding colors for me. It is very convenient to have a digital palette now and they will also be with me for shopping online or in-person. I highly recommend Dawn for these services and, of course, to invest in ourselves.”
JoAnne, LinkedIn Strategist
“I’ve worked with Dawn for a color analysis and clothing shopping. She has a unique talent to visualize what I can’t see and create a style I would not have thought of but ended up loving. If you want to discover what colors bring out your best features and update your style, I highly recommend hiring Dawn. You will walk away feeling and looking great!”
Dorianne, Account Coordinator
“I worked in the retail industry for many years, and my job required me to wear black daily. When Covid hit, I was one of the not-so-lucky ones to keep my job. I am not transitioning and realized I need to refresh and update my current wardrobe to reflect my new adventure.
Dawn helped me realize that I need to add some color to my wardrobe as she sees me daily and noticed I needed to get out of my funk. Dawn made me realize my natural color had changed form years ago. What I used to think I looked good in, doesn’t serve me today.
Dawn’s expertise in color analysis gave me a whole new perspective on how wearing the right colors can change how I am perceived today and how I feel when I get dressed. I feel so much happier and I love getting dressed and experimenting with my new colors.
I highly recommend Dawn’s color analysis. She is very knowledgeable in her craft.”
“Before I met Dawn, I was walking a fine line between being viewed as powerful yet approachable. I was meeting the external expectations of my corporate career. However, I still wanted and needed to be taken seriously as the thought leader in my industry.
I grew up with my own beauty paradigm; my mother taught me how to dress and put makeup on, which is all I knew. I hated getting my picture taken growing up because I never liked how I looked. Once I advanced into the corporate world, I had this paradigm of what a corporate image should look like; (which was the traditional corporate suit and pearl necklace that I thought was what the world
wanted). When I looked at my LinkedIn picture, I saw a pretty woman, but that woman wasn’t me. That picture represented what I thought the expectation was, of what corporate America should look like.
From the inside out, Dawn’s gift of capturing the true essence of who I am today becoming more bold, innovative, courageous, inclusive, and vulnerable and aligning it with how I show up on the outside. My image and personal leader brand are more aligned and on point today, and I am more confident and ready to break that patriarchal paradigm. I am being considered for a director role sooner than I imagined. Dawn has helped me get to the core of who I am in a way that lets the rest of me shine. I am now free to be ME!”
“Dawn is amazing! She is dependable, professional and a straight forward coach. Before I met Dawn, I was struggling to find time for myself, my family and my self-care. Every day I would come home exhausted from work and would quickly lose my patience with those around me. I couldn’t find my way out of a downward spiral of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and anger towards myself and others.My breakthrough while working with Dawn was when I realized that my self-limiting beliefs were holding me back. I could see where I wasn’t taking risks and putting myself out there. I had been letting other peoples’ assumptions of me get the best of me for far too long.”
Steve Blexrud, Generation Group
“Before meeting Dawn, I was very set in my ways. I have always liked fashion and thought that I dressed well and looked good. I really believed I had it all going on. What Dawn brought to my attention was that I looked older than I was and I was dressing like it too. My clothes were outdated and too big for me. My jacket didn’t fit me well and my pleated (and cuffed) pants were at least two sizes too big. Working with Dawn has left me feeling more accomplished, professional and confident. My new image is magnetizing to clients I want to work with. This new confidence has also helped me with weight control and improved my overall health. I highly recommend Dawn’s expertise. She is knowledgeable, fashionable, fun and excellent at what she does.”
Kari Bjorhus, VP Global Communications
“Dawn has a real gift for helping people look and feel their best. I love her down-to-earth approach and her ability to help people develop their own sense of style. Her thoughtful counsel helped me take a new approach to how I put myself together each day. Her expertise could help anyone make the most of what they have, have more fun with fashion and feel more confident in their appearance.”
Kathleen Watson, Entrepreneur
“I so appreciate Dawn’s energy and intention. Her focus is on helping people tap into their own power and she facilitates that process through a caring, non-judgemental approach. She creates a safe space and is obviously willing to learn from and grow with her clients. Treat yourself to some time spent with her!”
Beverly Nowakowski, Photographer
“In a short period of time, Dawn helped me change my clothing selection and ideas into those that work, are flattering and the right colors. As an added bonus, Dawns energy helps me stand taller and smile.”
Kelsey P., Marketing Associate
“Dawn used her expertise and listening skills to help me build my confidence and personal brand, to who I am and how I want to be perceived. She helped reignite my desire to get back on track, focus on the things that matter to me and guided me on how to achieve them. I have learned a completely different set of communication techniques that have significantly improved my relationships with others. Before working with Dawn I had a negative perception of myself. I was lost, confused and lacked confidence and visibility.”
Reid Kirby, Principle, Preneur.Media LLC.
“For most of us, our presence is a haphazard accumulation of oral traditions evolved from trial and error. We marvel at the unflinching superstars that are always on top of their game, not seeing the deliberate preparations. The most rewarding aspect of working with Dawn was being coached on how presence is planned ahead of being executed, adopting a process.”
Lori Lance, Managing Partner of AEEB, Inc.
“Dawn helped me understand there were some missing components when it came to my executive presence. I already had inner confidence in my knowledge and abilities however when I sat down with Dawn I knew she had much more insight into how to take my authentic personal brand to a higher standard and transform into a confident, credible and capable version of my best self. I would recommend working with Dawn; she can assist you in taking your brand to a higher level.”
Darla Preble, CEO Health Care
“Dawn is amazing and talented at helping me define my personal brand. She gave me permission to be who I am and how I want to be perceived. When I first met Dawn I was lacking my sparkle. I felt I had some confidence, however, it wasn’t enough. I wanted my “IT” back whatever that “IT” was. I feel more confident with my appearance on the outside, which has helped me feel more solid all around. My journey was amazing, I look and feel fabulous, I got my WOW Power! back. I highly recommend working with Dawn if you are looking to get your “IT” back!”
Katie O’Hearn, Supervisor
“Dawn helped me polish my professional image. I now feel more confident in my role as a supervisor and around other top leaders in my field. Before working with Dawn I didn’t feel good in my own skin. I wasn’t perceived as the leader I was promoted to be. Dawn helped me with much more than my appearance on the outside. She has also helped me find my gifts and realizing the impact I can make in my career now. I learned a lot about my professional presence and think about the statement I am making before I walk out the door. I highly recommend Dawn to help with your Professional Presence. The investment in myself was worth every penny. Thank you Dawn!”
Tamie Ward, Book Keeping with QuickBooks!, TLW & Associates, Inc.
“Dawn and I are working together to find a image that suits who I am as a person and a professional. I thought this process would be daunting and judgmental but Dawn has a knack for making people feel comfortable and fun with the process. I love getting dressed every day, I look great, I feel great and I am saving money by shopping smarter. I would highly recommend hiring Dawn to help you with your image needs. Thanks Dawn!”
Cindy Ojczyk (“o-check”), Interior Designer

Louise Griffith, Author of “You Are Worth It
“Shopping with Dawn was an exquisite experience. With colors in hand, we set off to find a type of outfit that would fulfill a need that I had in my wardrobe. Dawn had specific stores in mind and even had a sense of the inventory and items on sale. When she pulled the outfit together with an accessory item I can use with other outfits, I did feel like a winner! She is the consummate professional who knows how to honor an individual while still stretching one’s comfort level and having some fun!”
