Alum Spotlight: Famous Former Dawn Peters

 Since 1917, Girl Scouts have been selling their iconic cookies to fund unique trips and experiences. Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast is no short of successful cookie entrepreneurs. Last year, we recognized Dawn Peters financial advisor for Lincoln Financial Advisors in our latest class of famous Formers honorees. 

Dawn spent a good deal of her childhood in Girl Scouts enjoying her family‘s generational tradition of being a Girl Scout. She says her love for business and finance came from her success as a Girl Scout Cookie seller. She also loved earning badges and having leadership opportunities. As an adult, she engaged as a Girl Scout volunteer leading troops for both her daughters. Dawn has been a financial advisor since 1998. She joined Lincoln Financial Advisors in August 2012 and has been a successful female businesswoman ever since.
