In 2000, the Dawsons left southwestern Virginia, where Mike and Tina lived for 26 years, and moved to Washington State. Tina taught in and directed PK–12 programs, mostly independent alternative community schools, for over 20 years. In the past 20+ years, she has been both faculty member and administrator for brick and mortar and online universities. Dr. Dawson has participated in varied educational collaborations between the public and private sectors. Since joining Walden in 2005, she has taught across leadership specializations, written several courses, and served on many doctoral committees as chair, committee member, and URR. As of 2020, Tina retired from full-time work at Walden and is concentrating on serving doctoral students. She enjoys helping students think through the inquiry process.
