Dawn joined Ariya in the spring of 2016.  She graduated from Medical Careers Institute of ECPI University in 2016 with an Associates degree in Applied Science.  She has always had an interest in the medical field, and believes while there is a definite place for hard science in health care, holistic care is the way to go.  When she found Therapeutic Massage she knew that it was the right field for her.  “Seeing the expression of relief, because I reduced the feeling of pain or stress, on my patients’ faces after a massage, makes me feel that I have accomplished a lot.  I know that my therapeutic touch has helped to heal & lift their spirits and to allow their bodies to continue to heal.” After over 20 years in South FL, Dawn moved to Richmond.  “I enjoy the 4 seasons and here in Richmond, they are not typically too extreme.”  In her spare time, Dawn likes to listen to music, dance, sew, and cook.
