After graduating from high school Dr. Dawson headed to Sioux City to attend Morningside College, and upon completion, left with a biology degree. Always having her mind set on the medical field, she contemplated what area of this field would be a perfect match for her.

Dr. Whitney quickly admired the connection that chiropractors developed with their patients; their care and guidance really seemed to make a difference.
