Dawn Nickel

Dawn Nickel, PhD, is an accomplished and versatile leader and the creator of She Recovers, currently the largest online platform dedicated to supporting women in recovery from addiction and related life challenges. Dawn started her journey of recovery from drug addiction in 1987. She is a strong advocate for the view that every 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 (both online and off) for women in recovery to connect with themselves, and with other like-hearted women.
