Dawn Alva

Dawn oversees client services for the Health Horizons program and across other projects at the Institute, contributing to the business relationship part of the equation. She began her technical sales career over a decade ago after realizing her skills lie in building partnerships between organizations and their clients. She believes in living life passionately which is why she was intrigued by the topics the Institute covers. This view of life has taken her on many adventures ranging from starting a company in the era to dancing the Tango in Buenos Aires. Recently, this passion has taken a more personal turn to focus on her new son.

Before joining IFTF, Dawn worked at IDC (International Data Corporation), a global provider of market intelligence for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets. She graduated from Western Washington University (Bellingham, WA) with a B.A in Finance and Economics.
