Menu for The Almighty Johnsons


Fern Sutherland
Dawn is Anders' girl Friday and the backbone (and moral center) of his PR company. She is the woman who keeps things moving in the right direction, often despite the best and worst intentions of her employer. Despite Ty being married to Eva, Dawn is still holding a candle for him -- not that she'd let anyone know about it.
