PaulaPaula Dawson, EFDA – Financial Coordinator

I was born in Bartow, Florida, but raised in Lawrence, Michigan. I graduated from Lawrence High School in 2003. I moved back to Florida in 2006. In 2011, I received my Expanded Functions Dental Assisting certification & C.D.A. from Traviss Career Center. I started my internship at Bright Smiles and was lucky enough to be offered a permanent position. I was a dental assistant for 2 years and then made the transition to become the Financial Coordinator in September 2013. I am currently attending Polk State College, where I am a member of the Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society, and am seeking a degree in Health Care administration. In February 2014, I married my best friend. On my free time I love to read and watch movies with my husband.
