Meet Dawn Coons

Dawn grew up in upstate New York just outside of Buffalo, N.Y. Dawn was raised by her Father and her Grandmother and her relationship with her Grandmother is what drives her love of seniors today. Dawn spent her years growing up surrounded by an elderly population and learned to love seniors and the stories they share.
Dawn Coons began her career in Senior Living in 1989 as an Admissions Director of a Skilled Nursing community. Dawn found her true calling in Assisting Living and Memory Care and in addition to her experience in operations as an Executive Director, Dawn also has experience in sales and marketing. Dawn has a strong passion for enhancing the lives of seniors and has an unwavering compassion for families and how difficult making life changing decisions can be. While working as an Executive Director of a Memory Care community, Dawn’s Father-in-Law became a resident. As the Director, as well as a loving family member, Dawn was able to experience firsthand the challenges a family faces. She uses that experience daily to better serve seniors while meeting all of the family's expectations of great care and a loving environment. Treating all residents as though they’re family is important to Dawn and her team.
Dawn has a son, Jonathan (29) who is a Gwinnett County Fireman and Paramedic, Son, Justin (24) who sells industrial steel, daughter, Regan (17) who attends Hebron Christian Academy and a Granddaughter, Karmen (4) who is her pride and joy. Dawn also enjoys tennis, reading and cooking.
