As a wife and mom of three boys, Dawn saw the need in her home and in culture for valuing relationships over technology. She particularly feels a calling for her generation, placed between the pre-smartphone and present smartphone era, to pass on this important "connection" message to these next generations. In 2014, she created Talk More Tech Less after witnessing how young men were positively impacted by putting away their phones at her husband’s outdoor mentorship organization. This experience motivated her to research technology dependency and how to address it. Dawn has spoken at local schools, churches, businesses, small groups and events to promote healthier relationships by addressing technology dependency in our lives and culture.
