Dawn M Westmoreland, a retired Air Force veteran, has over 22 years of experience in leadership, Human Resources, and coaching. She was sent to Washington D.C. in April 2015, by the Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) to be a “voice” to the Senate about reforming the Veteran Affairs (VA) and protecting VA “Whistle-blowers”. Dawn is also the author of “The Empowered Whistleblower: A Practical and Spiritual Path to Personal Power”. She shares how our “gifts” in life can sometimes come in “ugly wrapping paper”.
As a speaker and coach, Dawn is often able to help “shift” others and assist them in finding their voice, strength and personal power. Men and women who work with Dawn are often able to “break-free” from feeling overwhelmed, manage their stress, find their voice and set healthy boundaries in their lives. They are capable of living the lives they want and to “own” their personal power instead of giving it away to others.
Dawn uses her gifts and wisdom to teach others how to empower themselves. She does this through speaking engagements, radio/magazine interviews, consulting, workshops, teleclasses, webinars and private coaching sessions. She has been interviewed on more than 35 radio shows and featured in multiple magazines. A correspondent from the Christian Science Monitor praised Dawn for turning her horrific situation into something good that she can now teach others as well.
Quadeera Teart was raised in a family of very busy business owners, who always left her to tend to the young; never nurturing her gift and talent for creativity. She was always a smart young lady with creative ideas; a natural raw talent. She always succeeded at anything she put her mind to doing.
Somewhere along the way her voice grew weak, her ambitions broke down, and her vision for her life grew dim. Quadeera had lost her spark, until the day her soul physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally opened up.
Between her daughter being born, entrepreneurship, and life experiences, she found my shine again. Quadeera finally knew what to do with her voice, and her raw professionalism for idea and brand development. She finally learned how to own her celebrity, and now she helps women and youth, just like the ones you serve, step over their fears, step out of their 9 to 5's, and get rid of those yucky things called comfort zones.
Quadeera helps them step into the life and business of their dreams; boldly, fearlessly, confidently, and un-apologetically, to live the life they deserve, while serving their communities. She is Quadeera Teart, the Celebrity Woman, teaching women and youth how to develop their celebrity super powers for success.
