Dawn Fox, Practice Manager

Dawn always had an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to own and operate a business. Over thirteen years ago that dream became a reality. She, with her husband Chris, moved to Florida and landed on South Dixie Highway where Fox Spine + Sports Medicine has been maximizing performance ever since. Her greatest pleasure is meeting new patients and greeting those that have been with them since the very beginning return to the best state of health they can achieve. She also works diligently behind the scenes to keep the office state of affairs checked and balanced. The early part of Dawn’s career was spent working for a management consulting firm building and fostering client and community relationships, managing a team of in-house designers and copy writers, and communicating health care and retirement plan benefits to employees of Fortune 500, 100 and 50 companies.


Out of the office, Dawn is often spotted around town car pooling her teenage daughter Jules to and from school activities and social outings; and volunteering for or attending a charity function. She understands the concept of living a healthy, active, balanced lifestyle and enjoys discussing nutrition and participating in all types of exercise especially running. She competes in local 5k, 10k, and half marathon races and has participated in two, 200-mile team relays and completed a half-iron distance triathlon.
