DawnDena Gordon

DawnDena grew up in Saskatchewan and moved to Brandon after high school to study music at Brandon University. She majored in percussion, although she also sings and plays the piano. She took a break from her studies for a couple of years to adventure across the seas. During this time, she taught English as a Second Language to elementary students in Taiwan and learned some basic Mandarin Chinese. She also visited Nepal, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bali, and Japan. When she returned home, DawnDena completed her Bachelor of Music.

She next completed a business administration diploma from Assiniboine Community College and was co-valedictorian, graduating with high marks and a number of awards.

DawnDena Gordon started her career with Campus Manitoba in August 2007 as the Assistant to the Director. Speaking with students was always one of her favourite parts of the job. When the position of Virtual Help Desk Navigator was created in 2014, she knew right away that she wanted to step into that role. She has been a Navigator since and she’s loving her job.

Question: When you’re not at work, what do you enjoy doing?

You’ll find me chasing after my young son. He certainly keeps my husband and me on our toes. In my downtime, I like to curl up with a good book or spend some time colouring. I also enjoy spending time with my whippet, Karter.
