Dawna is trained in Tang Soo Do martial arts, martial arts weaponry, kickboxing, ballet and pole dancing.

She has a B.S. Degree in Business Management and MBA from Pepperdine University, and her uncle is legendary director Tak Fujimoto. Dawna is also the executive producer and host of an award-winning television interview show called “Eye on Entertainment”.
Dawna is excited to have played Skye in John Reign's heartwarming war film "Finding Purpose". The film stars Reign and Tom Stoops, and director Reign expanded her role as his ex-girlfriend as the shoot went on. "Finding Purpose" ended up being Dawna's first love story! She just finished reprising her role of Skye in the big budget sequel "Finding Purpose: The Road to Redemption". In the extraordinary sequel, Dawna is now married to Reign’s character John Kayhill, and the legendary actor Aki Aleong portrays her father. Reign is represented by Ron Paul Associates, and both “Finding Purpose” films are slated to be released to theatres nationwide. Dawna also performed the challenging Lady Macbeth Scene 5, Act I monologue in Brian Barsuglia's documentary "A Bard for the Ages: Shakespeare's Timeless Effect".
Dawna was recently honored to work with the great Eddie Griffin, alongside Robert Amico and Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Justin Shenkarow, in Param Gill's "Bad President". Griffin played Lucifer, and Dawna played his minion Misery, Amico played Shame and Shenkarow played Anger. The big budget film is slated to be released to theatres nationwide next spring, just in time for the 2020 Election.
She is cast as villainess Haden Webb in Kevin C. Kellum’s nationally broadcast "Vice Squad Los Angeles" television series from Ascendent Studios. Academy award-winner Chris Tashima is a part of the "Vice Squad" franchise on the production end so the series is sure to be outstanding. Dawna has been cast in the pivotal role of the mysterious Lavender in a'Ali De Sousa's movie and miniseries "The Bench", alongside noted character actor Jeff Doucette. She is also cast in action star JJ Stomp's "The Bodyguard" and "In3Dragon".

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
- Ayn Rand
