Dawn writes clean, accurate and thoughtful copy. She resists the lure of cliché. As well as her ability to write hard news stories, she can turn out inventive and original features and entertaining colour stories.

Dawn is the whole package! Efficient, dedicated, and extremely hardworking - all done with a warm smile!

We had the pleasure of working together on Qatar Foundation Publications. Dawn's work ethic is impeccable - always submitted before deadline, always willing to lend a helping hand, always contributing ideas, and most importantly, a great member to have on the team!

I loved working with Dawn, and wish her all the very best in all future endeavours!
