 I have had the pleasure of working with Dawn as an assistant in Beginning and Intermediate with Dave Berger in Sacramento, CA. I have found Dawn to be extremely easy to work with.  She communicates well and can easily make difficult concepts simple and easily obtainable.  She is very wise, knowledgeable, approachable and caring in her supervision and as a provider.
