Dawn is a Woolwonga woman with degrees in archaeology and genetics, including an MSc in Archaeological science from the University of Oxford. Dawn is currently studying Indigenous Genomics at the University of Adelaide in pursuit of a PhD.

"My intention is to leverage my academic merit to provide fair and accurate information and protections to Indigenous Australians. This will allow each Nation to make informed decisions on their own behalf. Bringing other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women into STEM is key in this endeavour. "
