Dr. Dawna W. 

I am unique because of my ability to work well with diverse personalities and learning styles. I have a strong Christian foundation and I am able to see past the surface of what is being presented. I am patient and considerate. 


People would be surprised to know that I play semi-professional basketball and sing professionally. 


If I could tell my younger self one piece of advice, it would be: Do not allow the negative things people say to determine what you do and who you become. You are not what others believe you are but who you decide to be.
