Having been a registered nurse since 1984, Dawn has had a varied, fulfilling and wide-ranging career. During the years since qualifying as a nurse she has successfully studied for a number of post-registration awards, both clinically focussed and academic including Bachelors and Masters Degrees, whilst balancing the demands of a very busy work and family life.
In recent years Dawn has worked at a senior level in a number of local NHS Trusts being an Assistant Director of Nursing in South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Head of Nursing for Medicine in the Rotherham Foundation Trust and currently Lead Nurse for Specialist Palliative Care in Sheffield Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
This year Dawn intends to gear down a little and will semi-retire in July 2018. This will enable her to fulfil other areas of her life such as her involvement with DRASACS, moving to a new home on the east coast and engaging more in leisure activities including her great passion for dance and walking her two border terriers.
