Born in Atlantic City, New Jersey, her family swept across the country to California when she was 4 years old. Dawn grew up in a desert town North of Los Angeles. She loved to be active and explore the mountains, listen to the radio and play with animals. She was riding horses at the early age of 5, Dawn still loves being around animals of all sorts. She has a dream to someday to help the number of shelter animals decline and stop backyard breeding for good. She currently has 2 chihuahua babies that are as spoiled as can be!
In school, Dawn participated in archery, soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, track team and excelled in mathematics and science. In her teenage years she developed a deep interest in human anatomy and business management. When she moved to Texas she obtained a position leasing apartments, ending in an Assistant Management position. When her family moved across town, Dawn began working in a construction office where she stayed for almost 13 years. A strong desire to do something more with her life and helping others made her take the steps to become a massage therapist.
She likes to relax at the lake, taking walks (and naps) with her dogs, getting massages and facials, and getting out to listen to live local music. Her favorite stress relief is nice road trip when time allows, her favorite trip so far was a camping trip in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico.
Dawn is very passionate about her work and helping others. Becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist has given Dawn new perspectives on life – she feels at peace with where she is at and wants everyone around her to feel the same way.
