Dawn obtained her MBA from St. Francis University and her MSE in Communicative Disorders from UW Whitewater Wisconsin. She has worked in healthcare for more than 25 years in various roles including speech therapist, various levels of management, surveyor and brain injury case manager. Dawn has facilitated the Brain Injury Support group of East Central Illinois for more than 10 years and recently has began facilitating an additional Stroke Support Group in Macon County. In addition, she has served on the Brain Injury Association of Illinois Executive Board of Directors and the Illinois Governor's Advisory Council for Brain and Spinal Cord Injury.
While she enjoyed working in hospital management for more than 15 years, in 2018 Dawn decided to return to her true passion...serving others in a clinical capacity. Drawing on her experiences, and motivated by input and challenges expressed from those served, Bridges Therapy was created.
