Dawn Abernethy, AKA Case Management's Finance Manager

Dawn is director and co-owner of AKA and the Registered Manager for the organisation. Her knowledge and skills in financial management are complemented by the clinical and case management experience of co-owner and director Andrew Rose.

Dawn first joined AKA in 2008 as Accounts Manager on a freelance basis before being employed as Finance Manager in September 2015.

Earlier in her career she worked mostly within the construction industry, rising to become a Finance Director.  Dawn holds a number of accounting qualifications including the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians ) and ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) along with a BTEC in National Business Studies.

Before taking up her current role with AKA in early 2021, Dawn built up robust knowledge in all aspects of AKA’s work and joined the senior management team to help implement company strategy.

Outside work, Dawn has an endless list of hobbies. She regularly bakes for colleagues at AKA head office and enjoys eating out and fine wines; she has completed intermediate and advanced certificates in wine and spirits.  Dawn also enjoys ballroom, latin and rock’n’roll dancing; horse riding, walking and travelling to new places.

We asked Dawn a few questions to get to know her better:

  1. If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go and why?

I think it would be the Florida Keys because of the Beach Boys song Kokomo. I actually looked it up a few years ago to see where it is and it’s fictional for the song but supposed to be in the Florida Keys.

  1. If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

This is a difficult one but I think it would have to be a cat as they seem to have life weighed up and they’re agile unlike me – as you know I am extremely clumsy!!

  1. If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

This is so difficult as I love food and there isn’t much I don’t like but I think it would have to be curry as I love spicy food.
