Dawn Marie Westmoreland has always found her joy in inspiring, supporting, and empowering those who need it most. That joy has been reflected in her career and continues to be her driving force to this day. Dawn has also experienced workplace bullying and discrimination first-hand. In 2012, Dawn reported her former government agency to the Office of Special Counsel and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for prohibited personnel practices and retaliation. As a result, her managers and co-workers turned on her, and she was subjected to two years of horrific workplace bullying and discrimination.

Dawn M. Westmoreland has joined us before on Mental Health News Radio. She is an advocate and coach for anyone that has experienced workplace bullying. She also works extensively with legal professionals pursuing cases that involve workplace harassment. Her journey from the Air Force to Human Resources expert to Veterans Affairs to “Empowered Whistleblower” is fascinating. In 2015 the Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) compensated her to educate Senators on the need to protect whistleblowers in the Veteran Affairs. She is one of the co-authors of a new, number 1 Amazon Best Seller, “The Strength of My Soul: Stories of Sisterhood, Triumph and Inspiration”.
