Having obtained higher level degrees and been employed in the education sector as an admissions and academic advisor, Dr. Dawson has encountered various situations where there is a break down between the educational institution, student and parent. In her spare time, Dr. Dawson loves giving to other moms through The Mommy Giving Circle. She spends time as a professional kisser of ouches and homeschool teacher to the Prideful Kids, her 2 young children. She’s the Assistant Coach to the Batmen Baseball Team of Plano and all she knows is to hit the ball and RUN. Mainly she just tries to keep the boys from playing in the dirt in the outfield. She’s officially a dance mom and QUEEN of all Gap online shopping for kids. She will be the first to admit the way to her heart is Chinese food or some great crawfish and a plane ticket in hand.
