Her heart was (and still is) with the younger children in 1st and 2nd grades. Dawn has worked in Vacation Bible School since the age of 16 and is the current VBS director. She also holds multiple church positions including chair of the Deaconesses and serves on the nominating committee and Grace Place.

Following graduation, she had a seven-year career in newspaper publishing before pursuing a 39-year career with the State of Maryland in Harford County Assessments and Taxation. She held positions of increasing responsibility starting as a clerk and retired as the Assistant Office Manager in October 2020. She started that same month as the Office Manager for the church.
Dawn has been married to her husband Duane for 31 years and has one son and one grandson and resides in Aberdeen. In her spare time she enjoys bowling and being a cat (and dog) mom.
