I consider it a privilege to work with Dawn Mundy in various capacities. In short, she has been a fundamental part of my own (and many others’) journey.
She’s a leader…the one people look to.
She’s curious…the one who asks the REALLY hard questions.
She’s a problem solver…the one who delights in sinking deep into complex issues in pursuit of simplicity.
She’s devoted…the one who can’t put it down, turn it off or walk away until its done.
She’s well-rounded…the one who can handle just about anything you throw her way.
She’s gravitational…the one who people enjoy and want to be around.
She’s a TOTAL word nerd…the one who brings a tasty new vocab lesson to the table.
She’s a rock…the one who weathers through, ship righted, sails full.
She’s can cook…seriously. stupid. good. food.
She’s a friend…the one who listens well, says the right things and encourages.
There are many more qualities to describe Dawn...integrity, class, heart, grit, etc., etc. I can confidently speak for the many that have shared any time with Dawn…she’s someone you need on the team. You’ll be the better for it.

Dawn is the rare combination of creative genius and acute business savvy that every manager dreams of hiring. She will take the most lifeless concept or message and enrich, transform, and elevate it through her writing. Her contributions to creative strategy and product development are invaluable, always first evaluating her ideas to ensure feasibility and profitability. I would hire her again in an instant.

Dawn excels at a wide variety of creative executions, from scriptwriting and directing, to long-form copy, to DM headlines and digital content. She understands her audience, mediums, and all the possibilities in between. She is strategic, creative, collaborative, fast, thorough, versatile and dependable. She works to understand each challenge from top to bottom, plumbing the depths to find true insight. Dawn is the most wonderful type of introvert. She can sell ideas in to teams and clients. Maybe it’s her onstage singing experience or theatre background, but Dawn knows exactly how to prep a presentation and deliver it with warmth, confidence and precision. She is also an excellent listener. You should ask for her thoughts on what you just said. Bottom line: Dawn delivers. Once she’s briefed, she’s off and running. Account managers can get a little worried if it’s too quiet on the creative front, but not with Dawn. She is the consummate professional and knows how to manage her own time and resources to deliver excellence. She adds value to everything she touches. Dawn Mundy makes the world go ‘round.

Dawn was an invaluable member of our team. Her ability to move fluidly between projects and find the appropriate data points in her research is not something I've found in many coworkers in the past. She would often jump from writing scripts for client videos to collaborating on advertising campaigns to creating compelling and approachable concepts for difficult subjects. Her quiet presence hides a wit that comes out in her work. She is a fantastic partner for any project. I am jealous of anyone that gets to work with her in the future. I hope it will be me at some point. Also, Dawn cooks... ridiculously delicious food and she shares.
Ryan Deo, Creative Director | Colleague at Premier Studios
Want something done? Ask the busiest person in the room. Want something done and done right? Ask Dawn. Her breadth of experience, depth of character and presence of mind are true gifts to the clients she serves, the colleagues she supports and the company she keeps. Dawn loves a challenge and is a quick learner. Her strategic thinking and captivating writing are a true asset to any project she undertakes.
Ingerlene Frick, Account Manager | Colleague at Premier Studios
Dawn is an incredibly dedicated, detail-oriented team player. She can lead a team while also collaborating with team members and clients. Her understanding of the power behind the written word is unmatched. She can use words to make people think, cry, act and reflect. I’ve watched her work with large groups and one-on-one with clients to help communicate the message of a project. During her communication she clearly explains the expectations, deadlines and content involved. Dawn is a masterful artist and creator – she’s one of the best.Kasey Johnson, President, Smarter Moms | author, Mom Essentials
I met Dawn in the Spring of 2014 working on Breathe, a video based Bible Study series. Dawn was the producer and very closely managed both big picture concepts as well as the fine details that brought the final product together. After pouring nearly a year of my time and life into the content of the scripts, when it finally came time to film Dawn made sure that I didn't have to worry about any of the details, freeing me to focus on what I do best. She clearly had a great working relationship with her film and audio team. Dawn helped the crew work together seamlessly. I'm grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her.

Working with Dawn Mundy was a true pleasure. Dawn has an extraordinarily creative mind, one that she can harness for both content generation and visual purposes. Her storytelling abilities across mediums are impressive. As a new writer to the Family Features staff I looked to both my supervisor and Dawn as mentors. Dawn helped shape my writing to fit the needs of our clientele, and did so in a manner that only further supported my admiration for her talent and her demeanor. I could not more highly recommend working with Dawn, whether as a client or as a colleague.
