Dawn Gonzalez-Rubio

Director of Nursing

She’s worked as a CNA, charge nurse, MDS coordinator, ADON and director of nursing. She’s been married for over 30 years to husband Michael and has four children ages 15-28. She’s done volunteer work in Columbia, South America, and for the American Red Cross. She’s also been a foster mom for the Humane Society. Her heroes are Florence Nightingale and Maya Angelou.
