It's Black History Month and a few weeks ago I shared w/a friend that we should celebrate "our history & our friends". We do some amazing sh!t EVERYDAY. So we came up with:
🌹Today on my #NewHistoryList I highlight and celebrate Dawn Baxter | @dawniebdub
🌹I don’t think we sing the praises of our everyday hero enough. Dawn Baxter Woodhouse. DawnieBDub. Dawn Bax-Wood. Mother. Wife. Sister. Executive. Runner. Fly girl. Sister in Christ. Sneaker aficionado. Martha’s Vineyard connoisseur. Parker J’s Mama. I met Dawn many moons ago through business but I’m glad we developed a deeper connection non work related. Throughout the years we have done some kick ass campaigns and have come up with some amazing partnerships. I’ve pitched her artist, she’s pitched me product.. we are a happy work couple. Lol. Dawn is an executive at NIKE who has been responsible for some amazing activation and collaborations throughout the years (don’t try to ask her to be your 🔌either). Chances are when you’ve seen you’re favorite artist booked at a Nike event, her and her team have had their hand in it. When she’s not curating dope events she’s being mother to the flyest kid or running a marathon or doing something physically active(yeah not me). I’m always in awe of women who balance this role of being a wife, working mother and their respective successful career. Knowing that none of it is easy, it takes true strength and pure badassness to make it seem so easy. 🌹Dawn, for constantly creating the new narrative of Black History EVERYDAY, I celebrate you, today and always.
