Dawn's Bio Dawn has thrived in freelance writing and editorial roles for nearly a decade. It’s a career that allows her to explore all her interests -- namely travel, culture, history, vocabulary, sustainability and environmental issues, family life, and psychology while getting paid for it. Her ultimate goal is to take this experience on the road as a digital nomad, continuing to write while exploring the world. Dawn feels fortunate to have the opportunity to dive into a diverse range of topics, like how memory retention works or what we can do to reduce our environmental impact when we travel. She is a regular contributor to www.doityourself.com where she writes about the ongoing tasks required as a homeowner and helps to refresh aging articles on the site that need the dust knocked off and brought back to the surface, where readers can learn about DIY home improvement. She also writes for www.inhabitat.com, a resource for the sustainable community. As a habitual traveler with a serious case of wanderlust, it’s an uplifting opportunity to acknowledge the many people and companies around the world working to make an environmental difference. The daughter of small business owners, she loves supporting local small businesses through her work as a blogger, helping connect customers with hometown providers. Overall, she’s open to new writing challenges that help her continue to learn and grow. Being a wordsmith is a natural fit with a Passion for Words (professional website) that some say make her an interesting conversationalist at cocktail parties. She has lived, worked, and attended school in Oregon, USA for many years and currently spends her days convincing her children she is still smarter than them and creating new experiences with her husband of 25 years. Dawn holds a degree in psychology, which she feels gives her unique insight into the diversity of populations near and far. When she is not providing stellar online content for local, national and international businesses, you might find her backpacking the nearby hills and valleys, traveling to remote parts of the globe, or expanding her vocabulary in a competitive game of Words with Friends.
