As a little girl, Dawn Pensack dreamed of being a mother one day and wanted to raise her kids in a way very different than she was raised. Dawn knew there had to be more to this parenting thing and she was determined to find it. And she did. Dawn combined her years of working with children as a math teacher, her strong desire to bring happiness to families, and her love of spreading the love into a Family Happiness Coaching business that helps her fulfill her true purpose on a daily basis. Dawn works with parents who are struggling to have it all – a life, a career or business, and a family in the midst of a chaotic world. She reminds her clients that while it may not be easy, it’s possible to be the parent you want to be with the right tools and support.
When Dawn isn’t working with her clients to help them ditch the yelling and guilt and become peaceful parents, you can find her outside with her horse, canoeing, or just enjoying the day with her husband and children.
