Dawn Tisdale, Vice President
In and around the healthcare field for over 20 years, Dawn brings a unique perspective to patient advocacy based on both professional and personal experience. As a CNA and former hospital corpsman in the US Navy, she has a deep understanding of the critical need to educate patients on how to effectively advocate for themselves and their family members. 
Dawn volunteers with a myriad of organizations within her community and is excited to now be a part of Living Grace Patient Advocacy Group. She treats her patients as though they are members of her own family. She cares deeply about people and affords them the kindness and respect they deserve.
After witnessing the suffering and healthcare issues her mother faced during her long illness, Dawn was able to see the gaps created between physician and patient and the devastating effects that ensued as a result. It is her hope and goal to eliminate those gaps and create, instead, a bridge of knowledge for each and every advocacy client. Dawn believes Living Grace is the avenue to reach those with the greatest need.
