Dawn Neitzel Milburn


Dawn worked in the insurance industry for over 20 years. She graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in psychology and has been very active in non-profit work. When her own mother needed assisted living a few years ago, she realized that her business experience and her passion for helping people could benefit other seniors, as well.  She decided to make a career move and went to work for Merrill Gardens in 2016. There she discovered how fulfilling it was to work with seniors and their families. “Transitions can be difficult. I find it very satisfying to compassionately ease residents and their families into the community environment and to provide the guidance and assurance they need as they try to navigate this new chapter.”

Originally from San Diego, Dawn has been in AZ since 2000. She and her husband, Rich, share three grown children and three grandchildren. She enjoys crafting and hosting events. She also loves the outdoors so she and Rich spend as much time as possible using their RV, kayaking, and fishing. In fact, you might even see Dawn and her grandchildren casting their lines in our very own Morrison Ranch Lake since the kids live only a few doors down from the community!

“After failing to thrive at another facility, we placed my mom at Quail Park. Now my mom, despite her memory loss, is happy and socializing with her new best friend. The staff at Quail Park is professional and does a great job interacting with the residents.”
