Profile - Dawn Patton

My name is Dawn Patton and I have been a member of the Edmonton Insurance Association since 2008 and started full time in the insurance industry 14 years ago with my employer Economical Insurance. My career has been focused in Commercial auto, my previous role being Senior Fleet Underwriter, and in August 2014 moved into the role of Team Leader of Technical Processing.

The Edmonton Insurance Association was something I became involved in because I enjoyed networking and building relationships at the events they offered. I remember my first big event, the Night at the Races, I was able to meet the current CAIW president at the time (Debby Johnson) and thought to myself I need to join this National association. It has opened doors for me; given me experience leading meetings, organizing large events and a network of Insurance professionals across Canada that I can contact at any time. Becoming Director and now 2nd Vice President of the CAIW is a further step in the organization and it continues to develop my leadership abilities and helps me network with successful women in the industry across Canada.

It's hard to pick a favorite CAIW as all 7 conventions I have attended are very special in their own way. Edmonton Insurance Association hosted the 2012 Convention and I was Co-Chair of the event. It was a lot of hard work in planning and raising funds, but the overall outcome was fantastic, the speakers (Including silver medalist Cheryl Bernard) were amazing and it was an unforgettable experience.

I live with my husband and our dog Hobbit, we love to camp and go on hikes, our most recent one was the Inca trail in Peru. I also enjoy reading and scrapbooking. I have completed my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta, CIP in 2007, CRM in 2008 and FCIP in 2009 and all of this Education has definitely helped get me to where I am!
