Dr. Dawes grew up outside of Cleveland, Ohio. She spent a significant amount of time working in her father’s private family practice office and loved interacting with patients from an early age.

Dr. Dawes completed her dermatology training at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio where she served as Chief resident during her final year. After the completion of her residency training, Dr. Dawes worked at University Hospitals Cleveland for several years where she practiced general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.
