About Being Fierce and Fabulous 


Since it's creation in 2007, over 100 UNH women have experienced the Being Fierce and Fabulous women’s group. The goal of the group is to provide women a safe space to explore who they are in order to live lives that are fulfilling emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually.

In the Being Fierce and Fabulous Group, you will have the opportunity to creatively...

  • Connect with other women and make friends in a safe and confidential environment
  • Reflect on who you are as a unique individual
  • Give volume to your voice to assert your needs and desires
  • Gain confidence in who you are on the inside and outside
  • Develop techniques and skills to nurture yourself
  • Rediscover your already fierce and fabulous self

The group will teach you about the practices of meditation, journaling, assertive communication, affirmations, laughter, community, and creative arts as ways to take care of yourself and continue growing.


Group Facilitators


Dawn D. Zitney

Dawn has always had an interest in the ways women come to know themselves and identify with the world around them. She believes self-discovery is essential for women to uncover their personal power and live courageous lives.
Dawn is the co-creator of this group. Her hope has always been to provide women at UNH a safe and inspiring place to learn more about who they are and what they value. She feels honored to help others discover and affirm their already fierce and fabulous selves!





Kathleen Grace-Bishop

Women and women's issues have always been a part of Kathleen's work. Whether it is working with women to provide support, to assist them to come to know themelves and their potential or working with them to create change for themselves, other women and their community. Kathleen is very excited to be a co-facilitator of the group and hopes the women who join group will learn how to care for themselves in new and different ways, value their uniqueness and come to know their power. Having the opportunity to do this work has greatly impacted her and her way of being in the world.
