Dawn assists students in figuring out what to major in and how majors link to careers. In her role she enjoys learning about students as an individual and piecing together their interests, skills, and values with the help of assessments to facilitate the process. Identifying possible career paths and possible major choices for students to further explore is what we will do in our work together. Dawn is also the instructor for the Career Exploration Living Learning Community where first-year students participate in meaningful projects with faculty/staff members on campus to gain experience and build their professional competencies.

In addition, Dawn acts as the Career Specialist for Fine & Performing Arts and enjoys working with our creative students in pursuit of their career interests and integrating the arts into their careers and lives. 

Outside of work, Dawn enjoys practicing yoga and traveling abroad. She feels fortunate to be able to live in a beautiful area that many people come to on vacation. Come visit her in the CRC and ask about her personality type! (She is Myers-Briggs Certified and a bit of a geek about it!)
