Dawn's passion for athletics began at an early age as a competitive gymnast. Her enthusiasm for gymnastics drew her to springboard diving in high school where she earned a national champion title and was 8 time All-American diver at the United States Air Force Academy.
During her career as an air force officer and pilot, she continued her active lifestyle of running, mountain biking, spinning, and snowboarding.
