More About Me

Hi, I'm Dawn, a human resource junkie with a passion for people development. I've been an HR director for several branded hotels in San Diego, serve as a forum leader for current HR executives and an adjunct instructor in the HR Certificate program at SDSU.


For over 30 years, I've been on a whirlwind adventure of experience and self-discovery and want to share what I've learned with others. Think of me as your wingwoman, here to help you navigate your unique challenges and create environments that inspire your team.

What sets me apart is my willingness to be open about my own struggles including mental illness. This transparency has made me a relatable consultant and public speaker. My superpower lies in employee relations and effective leadership using my innovative approach - CYA Squared™.

I believe in the power of stories, and I love to share my experiences, insights, and mistakes to encourage and equip individuals to overcome obstacles and thrive in their personal and professional lives.

I'm on a mission to create workplaces where people feel safe to speak openly, look to help one another, and want to support their organization.
