Dawn considers herself something of a “foodie” – she and her husband are always on the hunt for great restaurants and hidden eateries.

Personal Service Philosophy: “I strive to respond to client and firm needs rapidly, and to communicate expectations clearly and frequently.”


Favorite Book: Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist

Dawn’s teammates commend her for being a reliable professional and a good planner. She consistently works hard to meet each of her clients’ needs. Dawn was inspired to pursue a career in this field by her high school accounting teacher. She attributes her success to having a strong work ethic, accepting constructive criticism, learning from her peers, and understanding the value of periodically disconnecting from work to return refreshed.


Dawn and her husband, Drew, reside in Benton, Arkansas with their daughter. They are active members of Fellowship Bible Church. Dawn loves the state of Arkansas for its natural beauty. She enjoys working in Little Rock because it is a larger city that retains a small-town feel. In her free time, Dawn enjoys traveling to new places, being outside, attending group Bible studies, and being a mother to her daughter.
