WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Dawn is a strong leader who is innovative and strategic in the work she does. She is intentional with her decisions and works to move programs/systems forward rather than allowing the “this is how we have always done it” mentality to persist. She has very strong leadership skills that allow for others around her to be better leaders. She is fearless in her leadership and drives other around her to also be so.
Dawn is a shining star; a source of inspiration and a fountain of innovation. I met Dawn over 10 years ago. while serving on the Board of Directors of the Health Planning Council of NE Florida where Dawn was our CEO. Dawn brings dynamic energy to her work and her leadership approach. Her internal compass points towards lifting people up. She is willing and capable of navigating even the biggest lifts - from government reform, to creating healthy communities through outreach and collaboration, and still consistently making time to lift her team and its individual members. Working with Dawn is always exciting and inspiring. She aims to make a difference and she hits the target.
Dr. Emerick is an innovative leader who works tirelessly to make teams and situations better. On a professional level, she is a critical thinker and thorough, and on a personal level she is thoughtful, kind and loyal. I know Dr. Emerick will be a great addition to any team she is a part of in the future.
