Meet Dawn

Position: Dawn is the coordinator for the MSU Collegiate Recovery Community.

Education: Michigan State University, BS Psychology

Professional Interests: As an individual in recovery for over 18 years, I am passionate about helping others who are struggling with substances or are at risk for a substance use disorder. This passion is reflected in the work I have done in the Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Recovery fields over 5 years and completion of the Peer Recovery Coach training. My experience working in research and program development has instilled a strong commitment to improving behavioral health services by bridging the research on program design with service delivery to maintain fidelity, achieve outcomes, and promote sustainability.

More about Dawn: When I am not at MSU, I keep busy by renovating and preserving my historic home, built-in 1890, with my husband. This growing interest in historic preservation has led to an appointment on the Eaton County Courthouse Square Museum Board of Directors. I also have a house full of rescues, including two dogs and two cats.

Dawn grew up in Muskegon, Michigan enjoying the shores of Lake Michigan and one of only a few luge tracks in the United States.
