Dawn started her career as a news producer working for ABC in Santa Barbara. After relocating to Los Angeles, she spent several years producing medical programs for Lifetime Network before returning to news as a producer at NBC.
She then co-founded Blue Field Productions with her director/cinematographer husband and together they have served the production needs of over 200 clients. Among her most meaningful production experiences was co-producing the award winning documentary, GO PUBLIC: A Day in the Life of an American School District which aired nationally on PBS and is continuing to be used as a teaching resource in colleges, universities and libraries across the nation.
Over the years, Dawn has particularly enjoyed managing all the financial aspects of running a production company. She received her B.A. in English Literature and Business/Economics from Westmont College with additional training in production from Stanford University.
Dawn is most proud of her role as mom to four great kids and her advocacy work on behalf of public education.
