Please join us in welcoming Dawn Miranda to the Dankmeyer team! Dawn comes to us from San Antonio, Texas, where she worked as a prosthetics and orthotics patient care advocate for the past two and a half years. Dawn is fulfilling a new role at Dankmeyer as a Prosthetist Assistant. Her many years in healthcare – both in patient care as a licensed practical nurse and in administration - make her a valuable addition to our clinical staff.
Dawn also brings a unique set of skills and knowledge to the team, as she is a left below knee amputee. She is a very active adaptive athlete - participating in 5k running events, hiking, mountain biking, downhill skiing and horsemanship. She is a two-time survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and active in online support groups to help other amputees as well as cancer survivors. Dankmeyer will also take advantage of her education and experience in marketing as part of our marketing team. Originally from upstate New York, her family relocated to Maryland to be close to their grandchildren. She is already enjoying the more moderate weather, and looks forward to experiencing winter again!
