My Life

Dawna is an Open Format DJ based out of Kansas City. At a young age, Dawna fell in love with entertaining and mascots. From 2002 through 2012, she helped build the mascot programs at her middle school, high school, and college. For 10 years, she brought a mascot to life by interacting and engaging audiences without speaking. With her creativity, she was able to entertain a crowd through dance and music.

Transitioning from life behind a mask to a life behind a microphone, Dawna spent her college years working at the campus radio station. After graduating, she spent 4 more years working with some of Kansas City’s top radio stations in various roles from intern, board operations, to morning show producer, and on-air talent.

Now, you can find Dawna all over the Kansas City area and in other parts of the US for various events, particularly school events – elementary, middle, and high schools. Her days as a mascot have helped her know how to engage students and keep them entertained. Dawna’s school dances are second to none due to her energetic song selection. Students know when Dawna shows up, they are there to dance. Her reputation with administration is a trustworthy DJ who has the ability to help with crowd control without sacrificing the party atmosphere for the students.

Party training

In 2012, Dawna learned the fundamentals of event planning, emceeing, and song selection with a mobile DJ company. It started out as a way to gain job experience to prepare her for a radio career.  While at the radio station, she became a part of the mobile radio DJ company. It was all a hobby until 2016 when her reputation with schools and private events grew a strong following.  Dawna decided to make the DJ industry her full-time career.

Client Testimonials

Dawna did an AWESOME job at our 5K. She brought top of the line equipment and our crowd really enjoyed the wide selection of music. We would definitely hire her again.

We used Dawna as our DJ for our wedding.  I loved how professional she was through the whole experience.  I loved that she sat down with us before the big day and talked to us about schedule, atmosphere of our wedding and helping us pick songs to get people out on the dance floor.  Dawna kept us on schedule at the reception and kept people on the dance floor all night.  I would highly recommend her for any type of event but definitely for weddings! She made this day exactly what we wanted and took our vision and made it come alive.

It wasn't until my senior year of high school that my school hired DJ Dawna for a dance. We had no idea what to expect! Dawna turned out to be the best DJ we have ever had—no joke! Do you want a great mix of music? Dawna has you covered! You don't know how to do the Cupid Shuffle? No worries, she will show you how it's done! I highly recommend DJ Dawna for any event! You won't regret it!
