About Me

Melanie Dawson, NC

mel headshot 3.1 2017

I specialize in helping people meet their health and wellness goals through approachable and easily understandable advice. I believe that by making small, sustainable changes in how we nourish ourselves both through food and activity, we can support our lifelong well-being.

An avid golfer, reader, traveler and connoisseur of fancy cocktails, I also (rather slowly) run 5ks and 10k races for “fun”. And ever since taking my first yoga class in a basement room of the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan in 1999, I have been a fan of the way it calms my mind and body. I excitedly read nutritional and medical research papers in my spare time.

I live just outside of Minneapolis, MN with my golf partner and eternally patient husband, my begrudging golf partner and incredibly awesome teen daughter, and a Labrador Retriever who likes to sleep in laundry baskets.

I can be found online on Twitter @CultivateWell, on Instagram at @CultivateWellness and on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/CultivateWellness. My email is CultivateWellnessEmail@gmail.com

I’ve always been intensely interested in the field of nutrition as it relates to our health and wellness.  I believe the things we eat and do have a profound effect on our overall wellness.  I am excited to share what I know with you.

Please contact me if you are interested in working together to achieve your health and wellness goals. I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Hi Melanie, Thanks for recently stopping by my blog! I agree with your ideas on health very much. I try for the most part to eat healthy, but also include dessert once in awhile or special meals for company or special occasions. I also love to cook and travel. I look forward to checking out your blog!
