Dawn, VP Operations
1- Hiking is my passion. I love that during my hikes I can clear my mind and focus only on that moment.
2- God and family are #1. I try to love, serve and give my all into what God needs of me, which always includes my dear family of six.

4- I sing or hum all the time (even though singing is not one of my strengths), but I do it anyways because it keeps me joyful.

3- Faith. I served as a worship leader for 7 years while living in San Diego, CA. I love to sing and serve God anyway I am called.
