Away from work, Dawn likes to do just about everything she can while outdoors. It could be fun on the water, a round of golf, exploring a new bike trail, or a simple hike. Or it could be gardening, yard work, or a D-I-Y fix-it task. In her words, “If it gets me outside in the fresh air and sunshine, I’m game!”
