Dawn graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Environmental Science, long before she had babies. She never imagined how her interest in environmental chemicals would play such an integral part of her life as a mother.
Having worked at one of Canada's largest packaged food companies for many years brought to light how controversial chemicals are excessively used in most processed foods.
Then when Dawn's first daughter was two years old, she had a severe allergic reaction to chemicals commonly used in conventional sunscreen and life changed forever. Research and label reading became commonplace especially where her kids were involved.
Dawn now loves to write in hopes of helping other parents navigate the challenging world of everyday household chemicals.
