Delivery / Strategy / Owner

Growth requires dedication, consistency and a sense of loyalty. Dawn’s life is proof that she values all three. She’s had the same monthly book club for 21 years, and her neighborhood Bunko group has played together for almost as long. She dedicated endless hours to the growth of the Hastings YMCA as a board member. Then there is her family, and Dawn is at the center of it to support her husband, Scott, and their daughter, Bella. To keep life organized, Dawn’s meal planning with new recipes is legendary, and she knows her family budget to the penny!

While most people see Dawn’s serious, get-it-done professional side, she has a true soft spot for Golden Retrievers, cardio dance fitness, white wines and feel-good Hallmark movies. The family’s retrievers, Nora and Sullivan, are just fine with that.

Do you have a favorite TV show?
My favorite TV show of all time is Gilmore Girls. I have watched the series numerous times and am even a member of a group on Facebook called Gilmore Girls Fanatics.

What do you think the ultimate theme party would be?
My ultimate party would be a 70s disco themed party and I would have the band Boogie Wonderland play at it. They were huge when I was in college and in my 20s – not sure if they are still around. But the lead singer was named Christy Love and they were awesome!

Coffee or tea?
Coffee! I LOVE coffee and I take it black. My daughter is 20 and in college and thinks coffee is gross and I just don’t understand it.

Do you prefer cooking dinner or going out?
Cooking dinner. I am a really good cook so often times we will go out and I’ll be disappointed and it really bums me out and then I feel like I just wasted my money.

What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
Make my bed. I don’t know….maybe it’s ingrained in me from when I was little. And of course, now my daughter doesn’t always make her bed and it drives me nuts!
