Dawn M Dalili, ND grew up in New Orleans and developed an interest in health and medicine at an early age. This interest was fueled by her love for sports, especially soccer and volleyball, and she dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
She later sensed that conventional medicine, with its focus on pharmaceuticals and surgery, was not the path she was called to walk, and she spent her time at Vanderbilt University studying economics and math, not knowing that medicine included more than the conventional world in which she was raised.
After graduating from Vanderbilt, Dr Dalili moved to San Francisco. Here she began practicing yoga and discovered the world of natural therapies, complimentary and alternative medicine. This experience rekindled her love for medicine and she chose to become a Naturopathic Physician.
Dr Dalili studied naturopathic medicine at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona, graduating in 2010. After graduating, she moved to Florida to raise her son near her family. While in Florida, she developed a practice that helped women around the country to resolve their emotional eating triggers and lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way.
Now that Dr Dalili is here in Missoula, she brings her passion for health and her understanding of the psychological influence on wellness to Montana Whole Health where she will serve those struggling with chronic health concerns to reclaim the life of wellness they desire.
