Byron Health Center to Host Dottie Davis in an Evening of Sharing Tomorrow

Speaks on Struggle, Survival, Empowerment and Success
Kicks Off the PatchWork, a Forum for Women, Series

Dottie Davis, international speaker on domestic violence, will present an Evening of Sharing at Byron Health Center, 12101 Lima Ra in Fort Wayne on Thursday, May 14th. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the presentation beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Eakin Family (Activity) Room. Davis is a survivor of domestic violence who offers a true understanding of the dynamics of the issue; including a law enforcement officer’s perspective. The event is open to the public and all are invited to share in the evening. This will be the first of many events in the PatchWork, a Forum for Women series, presented by Byron Health Center.

Davis is President and owner of Davis Corporate Training where she developed and shares a compassion for empowering people through education, training, mentoring and providing resources to address issues within the criminal justice system, workplaces, and the community at large. She speaks internationally on topics surrounding family violence, legal issues and liability for law enforcement, law enforcement’s response to persons in a mental health crisis, supervision and leadership, ethics, women in non-traditional careers and workplace violence prevention. Davis joined the law enforcement profession in 1981, serving mostly in patrol holding the ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Director of Training at the Police Academy, Quadrant Commander and Deputy Chief; but now serves privately as the Security Director for Fort Wayne Community Schools. She also often consults as an expert witness in both civil and criminal trials.

“We are so thrilled and grateful to have Dottie speak at our inaugural PatchWork, a Forum for Women series presented by Byron Health Center,” said Byron Health Center Director of Life Enrichment Elizabeth Johnson. “Her message of struggle, survival and success resound with many of us already. We hope that many more will be empowered by her story to seek the guidance and assistance they might need”
