Born and raised in Spirit Lake, Iowa, Dr. Whitney Dawson developed a strong love for the water, spending quality time with her family, and making memories with her friends early on in her childhood.
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. However, after being advised to shadow a chiropractor in her area, she knew that it was a perfect match. Dr. Dawson quickly admired the connection that chiropractors developed with their patients; their care and guidance really seemed to make a difference.
Without hesitation, Dr. Dawson applied to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida. Her strong love for the water led her to be on the coast as she continued her studies and built her career. While attending Palmer College, she was designated the Clinical Teacher’s Assistant and had the opportunity to practice a wide variety of methods, including: Diversified, Thompson, Flexion Distraction, Activator, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, and Pettibon.
Upon graduation, Dr. Dawson decided to move back home so she could be around her friends and family. Dr. Whitney is committed to continuing her education for your health. She recently received her Webster Technique Certification and is working towards her ICPA Certification through the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics. When she is not seeing patients, Dr. Whitney loves to spend her time running or walking her dogs, Lilo & Stitch, spending time on the water with kayaking or boating, and going to movies with her husband, Josh.
