Chief Legal & Administrative Officer
Dawnn currently oversees all legal, compliance, and risk issues for Freeman, with a secondary focus on maintaining the company’s reputation as the brand experience leader.
Her dedication is invaluable to helping Freeman achieve its objectives while protecting stakeholders’ interests.
Before joining Freeman in 2001 as the company’s first in-house attorney, Dawnn was the director of litigation management services for a large private insurance brokerage. She has also managed her own private practice. Having worked with Freeman as both a provider and an employee, Dawnn’s unique perspective lets her easily navigate opportunities and challenges. She is a current member of the Association of Corporate Counsel, the General Counsel Forum, the California State Bar, and the Texas State Bar.
A former recipient of the prestigious Buck Freeman award, Dawnn thrives on change. She is a member of the executive committee, where she drives Freeman’s strategic growth and challenges others to define the company’s business objectives. She is a founding member of (and a current Advisory Council member for) Freeman FWD—a grassroots leadership development and mentorship program aimed at promoting diversity, respect, and inclusion. She is committed to Freeman’s culture, values, and employees, and she dedicates herself to treating clients and colleagues with the utmost respect.
