“Since joining the practice in 2016, I’ve been able to achieve a heightened passion about my career and to enjoy wonderful interpersonal connections with my coworkers and our patients.”
Practice Manager, Dawn Means has been employed in medical practices since 2004, with a brief hiatus working at the Four Seasons Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In 2010, Dawn moved to Dallas and began her career in plastic surgery, starting at the front office, then marketing, billing, and financial benchmarking. Despite all of her experience, she is still committed to expanding her knowledge of surgical procedures so that she can best serve patients.
Dawn was raised in the Teton Valley, and she enjoys camping and fishing. Dallas is a great home for her as she loves traveling to new places and seeing and tasting as much culture as possible. She’s happy either going out to a movie or staying in to read whatever her book club has chosen. Cooking is her creative outlet, and she often hosts cookouts or dinner parties with friends.
