Andrew and Dawn are the Saturday team leaders! They run the show, and the ROC family is incomplete without them! We thank you SO much for dedicating your hearts and hugs to us! We LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!
Originally from the frozen north of Minnesota, Andrew and Dawn were brought to sunny Galveston by Andrew's job. Dawn has been a vegetarian since 2001 when she started reading The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama. She found that she felt the healthiest when she was vegan and started dabbling with raw food in 2008 but was not yet willing to take the plunge into increasing her raw intake until motivated by her fellow co-opers. In addition to the health benefits for themselves, Dawn is a local chiropractor who is keenly interested in helping her patients achieve better health through whole organic fruits and vegetables. They both love to spend time in nature, take care of their 4 rescue dogs and grow their own food. Andrew recently went veggie in January, and the great energy of the co-op has helped him keep going, lose weight and feel better all the time. Andrew's favorite time of the week is Saturday morning where he can feel good helping people. He calls the tired, satisfied feeling back at home at the end of his Saturday shift after their share is put away "pure bliss".
