Dawn's career began in the traditional print journalism way, honing her reporting skills while earning her master of arts in journalism and mass communications from New York University. 

She worked her way up from her first internship to become the managing editor of The CollegeBound Network. The company published national and regional print magazines called CollegeBound, which aimed to help teens with their high school-to-college transition. After the print magazine folded, she managed a suite of related websites and their associated social media accounts.

During this time, Dawn began dabbling with freelance writing, eventually expanding her expertise to credit score repair, talent acquisition technology, consumer finance issues, and more. Today, she runs a full-time freelance content business, writing for numerous clients, mostly in the personal finance, careers and B2B spaces.
