DTP Agoura Hills Chapter Leader

Dawn Simmons
Financial Advisor
Edward Jones

Tel: (805) 702-4157


I am passionate about being a financial advisor because it provides me with the opportunity to change lives. Recently I overheard an exchange between a Korean War veteran and his wife while shopping. This man served his country and now, in his retirement, is living on his military pension and Social Security benefits. He believed, like many people, that he would have enough income to support himself and his wife in his golden years. The reality, however, is heartbreaking as the two discussed which to buy for the month, shoes for him, or the household items they needed. My passion is to work with people to make decisions now, so they don't have to make heartbreaking decisions later. 

I work well with people transitioning due to divorce, military members, young families and veterans. I partner with you to identify your goals and assist you in developing wealth strategies that will serve you into your retirement years. 

I've been in the Ventura County area since 1991. I volunteer with my local Animal Services department by fostering difficult to place dogs, working to develop behaviors that enable them to become adoptable loving members of a family. I am on the Board of Directors for the Camarillo Chamber of Commerce. I am also the Chair of the Latinos in Business Committee at the Chamber of Commerce and on the Women In Business Committee.

DTP Non-Profit of Choice


Center4SpecialNeeds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation founded in 2011 that provides resources, education, and programs for families and individuals affected by developmental disabilities in Ventura County, California.  Center4SpecialNeeds' vision is to have families benefit from the information we provide, to help children progress, to help parents restore some balance in their lives and not feel they are in constant crisis mode. We want parents, who are feeling isolated and alone, to feel embraced and supported. We want to provide opportunities for individuals with special needs as they develop into thriving members of our community.

Be Part of the Change!

Center4SpecialNeeds is a non-profit organization and depends on your generous support!

Our monthly goal is for 300 individuals to make a monthly pledge of $20 for one year, which would provide the funding we need to sustain our programs, and expand to reach more individuals and families. For $20 per month, less than the price of one dinner for two at a casual restaurant, you have the opportunity to improve the quality of life for someone with special needs!

  • C4SN has undergone a dramatic expansion in our programs for children, teens, young adults, and families affected by developmental disabilities.
  • We now employ 6 part-time paid staff and numerous volunteers with special needs!
  • Without the safe and compassionate space of our office, many of these young adults would be isolated from the community and spending much of their time at home.

We need your support! You can join Center4SpecialNeeds in making an impact for individuals & their families by making a financial contribution, volunteering, or offering a donation of services or items. Click here to be part of the change and help us reach our goal!
