Guest Bio: Dawn Nickel, PhD
Dawn-NickelDawn Nickel, PhD, is an accomplished and versatile leader and the creator of She Recovers, the largest online community of women in recovery. Dawn started her journey of recovery from drug addiction in 1987. She is a strong advocate for the view that each woman in or seeking recovery must be supported to find the tools and pathways that will work best for her as an individual.

In the summer of 2011, while recovering from a serious case of workaholism, Dawn decided to apply what she knew about recovery to that area of her life. On an extended leave from work, Dawn began to blog and created the She Recovers Facebook page to share her journey and to reach out to other women wanting to recover their lives and their potential. Since 2012, she has dedicated herself to creating and holding space (online and off) for women in recovery to connect with themselves, and with other like-hearted women. The Facebook page now has over 260,000 followers.

Today, in addition to operating a full-time health and social policy research consultancy, Dawn is determined to grow She Recovers and its offerings so that more and more women can connect and heal from addictions and other life challenges.

In 2012, Dawn’s daughter Taryn Strong joined She Recovers. Taryn is a young woman, also in recovery, and a trauma-informed yoga for recovery instructor. She Recovers currently operates a resource-inspired website and blog, runs an international yoga and recovery retreat program, designs and manufactures a line of custom recovery jewelry, and recently launched a recovery coach training program. She Recovers, will host a major event – She Recovers in NYC – in May 2017.
