Cherry Marketing Agency
"The immense value Dawn brings to my business has quickly become a crucial component for growth within my agency. She helped me quickly identify the best path to my goals, and gave me encouragement, advice, and motivation to quickly and effectively meet those goals, in an abbreviated timeline I would never have believed was possible.
Dawn is an all-around wealth of knowledge, encouragement, and ideas. She is always positive, and clearly believes in the success of my business. She has become my biggest cheerleader, my most trusted advisor, and one of the few people I can count on to always be honest with me. Her input is truly priceless, and she is one of the most intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure of working with."
Dr. Kaye Otten, PhD, BCBA, LBA
I am in the process of starting my own behavioral consulting business, assisting with the reorganization of my family's farming operation and continuing my work with a not for profit organization that I co-founded. I was not sure that I have "what it takes" to succeed in the private section but Dawn has definitely increased my confidence that I am on the right track and have viable ideas and the leadership, people, problem solving and organizational skills needed to succeed in these endeavors.
Dawn is also a valuable resource to either assist or connect me to people who can assist me in any task involved with these projects. When I have questions or want input on ideas, I know who to ask! Dawn assists with every aspect of organizational management, whether it be brainstorming ideas, helping to clarify goals and action steps, or making connections with the needed individuals and resources. She has proved to be a valuable partner in making my ideas reality.
From the beginning, Dawn over-delivered on her promises. She was very detailed, prompt, and brought a needed point of view to the rebranding of my business. She helped me think through things that I hadn't taken time to do on my own (and I don't think I could have done this on my own!). She brought a fresh perspective, and forced (in a good way!) me to think about, and answer questions that I hadn't ever done. These questions were critical to the process of clarifying and rebranding my business.
Dawn is the perfect outsider, looking in. She doesn't come in with a prescribed agenda, but she does have a unique way of asking the right questions that build the intricate puzzle. As she inserts the pieces in the right place, the big picture becomes clearer. She's an excellent listener, but also knows when to play the devil's advocate.

"Dawn has provided me with tools and techniques for gaining valuable insight into the operations, hurdles, and growth opportunities within the company. Her plans are truly customized not only for the business, but for my management style as well. Dawn recognizes that all businesses are nuanced. To simply label Dawn as a consultant or business strategist completely rips away the passion, compassion, and endless drive that Dawn brings to her clients. I prefer to think of her as a mentor."
