About Dawn

Dawn Mattera is an author and speaker who has helped people for over 25 years achieve personal success and overcome challenges.
She has written articles and newsletters for international organizations, hosted and spoken at packed seminars and virtual events, and starred in monthly TV spots. Dawn holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, a Diploma for the Italian Language, and is a Microsoft Office Master (but, would rather be a Jedi master). 

In the span of just a few years, Dawn moved three times, was laid off twice, got divorced, and faced financial and psychological obstacles. With all that and a history of depression, one could imagine her checking into a local padded cell. However, she rose out of the mire, and she wants to encourage others do the same.
Dawn’s mission is to help people realize their potentials, live their lives to the fullest, and make a difference in the world. 

Born in New England, Dawn has lived in various states and in Florence, Italy. She and her life partner, Bob, have taken gladiator lessons in Rome and driven vintage FIAT 500s through Tuscany. They are still conducting research for the world’s best gelato.
