Meet Dr. Dawn

I am Dawn DeLavallade, M.D. I am a practicing physician and freelance writer based in Orlando, Florida. With several years’ experience as the primary breadwinner in my own marriage, I recognize that this phenomenon is part of an emerging trend in American relationships. This phenomenon inspired my first book entitled “She Makes More-Inside the Minds of Female Breadwinners” which serves to provide a voice for female breadwinners in America. This book reveals the thoughts and feelings that female breadwinners are often reluctant to tell their mates and will serve as a manual to help men better understand this unique breed of wife. My passion is to help marriages containing a female breadwinner to survive and thrive!

What can I help you with?

Let Me Guide You Toward Relationship Success

I embolden breadwinners to engage in some necessary soul-searching, allowing them space to finally come to grips with what they need from their men that they're not getting. By engaging breadwinners in honest conversations, I help them correct toxic behavior patterns that may have developed, and utilize tools of empowerment to reach a place of success in their relationships. My passion is to help Female Breadwinners strengthen their connections with their men, and to take their relationships from surviving to thriving!
