Vice President of Finance
It was Dawn’s desire to use her talents and skills in service to the Kingdom of God that led her to Compassion. She reflects, "I wanted to find an organization that promoted teamwork, focused on long-term objectives, and encouraged my personal development. God dropped me right in the middle of Compassion, and I haven’t been disappointed!"
Her professional credentials and experience have contributed greatly to Compassion’s overall organizational goals and objectives. Dawn has brought a fresh perspective to the Global Leadership Team, while continuing to emphasize the foundation of integrity, stewardship, and excellence upon which Compassion has been built. She has also brought strong leadership to the Finance Division, while encouraging a lighthearted, but hard working, atmosphere.
Dawn’s professional credentials and business successes fall second to her love for her own children. She has the joy of raising three boys: Adam, Joey, and Tommy. She says, "I’m always thankful that God gave me these three precious gifts! It amazes me how much our children constantly teach us about our Heavenly Father’s love for us."
Dawn also enjoys music of every kind and began playing the piano at the age of eight. Being active in her church’s music ministry, she has had the opportunity to compose and perform her own songs. “The best part of music,” she says, "is that God can touch parts of my soul that nothing else can."
