Dawn’s prior publishing experience was a devotion of 15 years to acquisition, management and new business development of over 1,000 subscription agents at National Publishers Exchange. She left SDP/NPE as the VP/GM of Publisher Relations and Agency Relations to pursue her own endeavors in the industry.
She since has created Priority One Clearing Services, LLC a well- respected and mature magazine clearing house. Dawn incorporated P-1 in July of 2008 and continues to expand its efforts as the industry changes. She is currently focused on the new acquisition mediums available through digital and on line programs in addition to sponsored / partnership / membership campaigns. P-1 has become a premier subscription agency in the industry.
Dawn has one son, JC who is a Mercer University graduate and helped her to launch Priority One and is now is enjoying a career as a General Contractor in the area.
When Dawn is not working she enjoys time with her family and golf! But don’t be surprised to find her fishing because that is her true passion!
She has two sons, Djay who graduated from the University of Central Florida and Sean who is currently attending the University of South Florida. Both live in Dunedin close to Celeste. On the weekends you will find Celeste and her husband at the beach or enjoying a bike ride on the Pinellas Trail and browsing through downtown Dunedin.
She was born and raised in Western PA, but traded in her skis for the beach life after her son Rowan was born in 2012, who has become quite the baseball player. She graduated from Allegheny College with a degree in Biology, but her love of the outdoors and traveling brought her to spend the next few years living in Pittsburgh, Seattle, and finally what is now her home of Florida.
Now enjoying living in a warm climate, Cristen can be found spending time with her family swimming, fishing, kayaking, biking, camping and motocross riding and as a baseball Mom. Her true passion is her mountain bike, which she races with her family most weekends all over Florida and the southeast states! Florida really does have a mountain bike scene and it’s awesome!
