Dawn Henry

Vice President, People + Culture Candelen

What motivates you?

There are many things that motivate me each and every day. I am motivated by serving others. There is no better feeling than helping someone to succeed, overcome a challenge or learn a new skill. I am motivated by my family, who make me a better person every single day. I am also motivated by challenges. Challenges keep us sharp and keep us moving forward. There is a genuine feeling of success when challenges are overcome.

Why did you become involved in the organization?

I became involved with Candelen for many reasons. First and foremost the mission of the organization and the opportunity to use my skills and knowledge to make a difference for young children throughout our state. I also became involved and stay with the organization for the people. Candelen is comprised of highly qualified, talented professionals who are compassionate, dedicated, and incredibly hard-working, this team is very much like a second family. Being involved in this organization means opportunity.  The opportunities for innovation and personal/professional development. If you want it and you are willing to work for it, Candelen will make it so.
