EXPANDED VERSION:  When Dawn was in Chiropractic school, she spent a year and a half as President of Life Chiropractic College West’s “Network Club,” where she coordinated practice groups and guest speakers & visiting Doctors (including Donny!).  While President of the club, she co-presented an hour-long integrative seminar between the NSA Club and the Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) Club, highlighting both the similarities and distinctions between the two approaches.

Something you may not know about Dawn was that she was ‘born and raised’ in Wheeler!  In fact, she attended our local Nehalem Elementary and Neah-Kah-Nie High Schools, and graduated as one of NKN’s co-Valedictorians.

When almost posed in the tone of a ‘dare’ by a local teacher at NKN during her senior year, she decided to major in music (Flute Performance) while attending the University of Idaho’s Lionel Hampton School of Music – a decision she has never regretted!  In fact, she turned out an album in 2005 with Larry Steelman entitled “Free in the Moment!”

After about 15 years of living in such locations as Idaho, Scotland (where she did more Scottish Country and Highland dancing than studying!), as well as 10+ years in the San Francisco Bay Area, she was finally ready to be called ‘home’!

One particularly pivotal year for Dawn has been 2015 – 2016, when she was part of Donny Epstein’s Pioneering group of “Master-E” Doctors – comprising a year-long course of both distance-based modules and in-person seminars with Donny.   Among her peers were 50-60 of the top doctors in the world in the realm of Re-Organizational Healing (ROH).  That year was absolutely EXTRAORDINARY in up-leveling her ability to serve others, and she is excitedly engaged in another year-long course with Donny as part of the continuing pioneer group of “Master-E PLUS” doctors during 2016-2017.  It is a privilege to be included among some of the most integrous and experienced practitioners in the world, and she is incredibly honored to bring all she learns home and into service from and through Wheeler, OR!

These days, Dawn ALSO enjoys quality time spent with a witty and fun little boy, and the amazing opportunity she has of being his Mom!  Savoring moments of shared friendship, an evening bonfire at a local farmer’s community gathering, opportunities to play her flute for and alongside others, kayaking in the Nehalem Bay River, hiking NKN Mountain or other local trails, singing along with a girlfriend while giggling over an ol’ time musical, enjoying a relaxing soak in natural springs (or hot tub), and her weekly summertime activity of “Beach Dance” are other avenues that spark her joy!
