RB Alum & Injured Iraq Vet Featured in Success Magazine


Here is an inspirational story for entrepreneurs. If you think the odds are stacked against you, think again. Consider the story of Dawn Halfaker, a former star basketball player at Rancho Bernardo High School, who was riding in a Humvee in Iraq when it was attacked by a rocket propelled grenade.  It hit her right arm, “broke five of her ribs and bruised her lung before exploding just behind her head. Doctors didn’t expect her to live.”

That was four years ago. Today, Halfaker is the founder and CEO of Halfaker and Associates, a 90 person national security firm in Washington, D.C. with projected annual revenues of $10 million. You can learn more about Halfaker’s amazing story in this month’s issue of Success Magazine.

So, when you have a bad day, remember the story of San Diego native Dawn Halfaker and keep the faith that you will enjoy brighter days ahead.
