For Women’s History Month, HRA is featuring some of our women employees who contribute to all aspects of the company!

Dawn Vogel is the editor, production manager, and business development assistant in HRA’s Seattle office. In addition, she received an MA in history from Truman State University, where she completed a thesis titled “German Immigrants in Rock Township, Jefferson County, Missouri, Prior to the Civil War.” She served as a research assistant and textual editor for six volumes of The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant and helped to edit three volumes of papers presented at Lincoln Forum meetings.

At HRA, Dawn copy edits cultural resources management and history reports, coordinates the report production schedule, and manages the Seattle office. She also assists with business development and historical research on various projects. While she works on a wide array of HRA’s projects, some of her favorites include the book-length histories for which she provides editing and indexing, like Commemoration and Collaboration: An Administrative History of Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.

When she’s not at work, Dawn can often be found crocheting, writing or editing fiction, or enjoying the antics of her two cats, Stormy and Foggy.
