I am Dawn McKee!! Wife, mom, sister, daughter and friend.
I have spent my ENTIRE “adult” life (I married my High School sweetheart 8 mos after graduating High School), married and working in the dental field. I have worked EVERY position allowed by law, in the dental office. It’s all I knew! I always thought I would retire from the dental field one day. Thus, the inspiration for my one and only tattoo...a tooth!!
I always dreamed of making a living doing what I was good at, but I had 2 problems with that. First, figuring out exactly what I was good at (besides sucking spit) and second, how to make money while I was figuring out how to make money doing something else!!
I mean these are real problems, girls!!
I knew I enjoyed introducing people to each other, I knew I liked to have parties, I knew I liked to cook, and I LOVED local business’. What do I do with that? I’m still trying to figure that out myself, but I'm getting close!!
While searching for the answers, I found The Housewives in the City blog page and they were looking to launch other cities. To my surprise, Dallas wasn’t on the list. I reached out to the founder of the company and we spoke and discovered it was a PERFECT fit!!
I decided to do Rockwall County because I live JUST on the county line. The county line is literally almost in my backyard. I MIGHT, I said MIGHT be able to throw a ball across the county line, and because I am integrated in the Rockwall County community through the Chambers of Commerce in Rockwall AND Royse City, and I belong to The Professional Women's Alliance of Rockwall County, and several other networking groups.
Rockwall County includes several small cities: Rockwall, Rowlett, Heath, Fate, McClendon-Chisholm and Royse City. We have GREAT local businesses!! "Mom and Pop" restaurants, tons of boutiques, breweries, coffee houses, and the women are fabulous!!
In addition to "socializing" and "networking", I am a wife to my husband of 25+ years, and we have two AMAZING sons!! My oldest, Grant, is in college at Stephen F. Austin State University (Axe 'Em Jacks!) and my baby, not baby, Grayson, is going into 5th grade.
I am SUPER excited to be launching the Rockwall County Housewives in the City and hope to see you ALL at my monthly GNO events in and around Rockwall County.
My name is Dawn McKee. I live in Royse City, Tx with my husband, Billy; 2 boys, Grant (away at college) and Grayson, who is almost 11; and our 13 year old Labrador, Jewel. I've never passed an Estate Sale I didn't break for, and I HAVE to have my morning coffee...ALL DAY!!
