Inspired by two decades of corporate experience-often being the “only one in the room”—her methodology is anchored on a simple concept: I belong where I am. As am... This is her personal mantra which also serves as the charter for the birth of her social consciousness brand, I Belong Here.

I Belong Here is meant to both inspire and empower members of marginalized groups to evade the grasp of "the imposter syndrome". At the same time, the apparel brand is meant to be a conversation starter poised to ignite a visceral discussion that will evoke storytelling. Dawn believes that sharing your personal story creates human connections that eventually build trust across margins, identities, and backgrounds. She believes that every story embodies the gift of a lesson. Ultimately, her mission is to drive the idea that everyone belongs right where they are... As they are. I Belong Here is both a statement and a cause for empowerment.

Dawn is a wife and mother who holds a BA from the University of California at Berkeley, an MBA from The Johnson School of Management, and a Leadership Certification in Diversity + Inclusion from The International Labor Relations School at Cornell University. Her civic and community engagements include Ellevate, FORTE Foundation, INROADS, Management Leaders for Tomorrow, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
