“It’s rare when you find a professional that knows their trade and exudes a strong desire to provide personal service to other people. Dawn is that one of a kind person. She has been an invaluable resource for my family and me, as we have had to deal with the pressures of caring for elderly parents. I’m not sure how we would have survived this season without the caring and loving support Dawn gave. Her work is top notch, spot on and excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
