Dawn joined The Dallas Foundation in 2015 as director of marketing and communications and each day since has been a wonderful opportunity to support, witness and share information about the generosity of individuals and the impact it has on our community. Dawn’s super power is multi-tasking and her desk is usually cluttered, but she thoroughly enjoys the energy associated with collaborating on a wide variety of projects. She frequently can be found asking her colleagues at the Foundation to read something or write something, and they graciously return the favor.
She earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees in communications from Loyola University New Orleans and subsequently has spent much of her 25+ year career in the nonprofit sector, including roles in higher education, social services and philanthropy. Dawn, her husband, two daughters and several pets reside in Rockwall.
