Comedy Reel

For COMEDY, she’s your quirky co-worker or neurotic mom. The kind you go to for advice knowing they are way off the mark! 

Drama Reel

For DRAMA, she’s your concerned and comforting mom or friend; strong complex dominate female or alcoholic mom.


Think Leslie Nope in Parks & Rec; Katy Mixon in American Housewife; Megan Mullany in Will & Grace or Allison Janney in Juno. Dawn is the oldest of 7 children whose parents were lawyers. Raised in Morgantown, WV, Dawn first entered West Virginia University studying acting for 2 years then switched to Exercise Physiology as a result of a family tragedy where her father fell 20 feet from the deck of their family home.  20 years later Dawn picked up acting again moving from community theater to student films to extra work on House of Cards to speaking roles in independent film projects including creating her own content. Dawn faced her fears of doing stand up comedy 3 years ago by taking classes at Stand Up Studios DC LA. She now also works professionally as a stand up comedian and producer of comedy shows for X2 Comedy.
