Dawn's experiences in special education have taught her that everyone has a unique learning style. She feels it is important to get to know the students here at Lesley in order to teach to their needs. Dawn believes learning can be hard work, but it can also be fun! Therapeutically she works from a relational perspective rooted in Attachment Theory. 

Dawn is an active person and loves the outdoors. She has hiked both Mt. Washington, NH and Mount Katahdin, MW. Minnesota is her home state, but she has lived in the Boston area since 2002.
