Dawn Schuette

Assistant Director of Military and Veteran Services



I grew up in Duluth, Minnesota, and attended Bethel for two years, from 1991 to 1993. I graduated from the University of St. Catherine in 1996 with a degree in occupational therapy. Since then, I have lived throughout the United States, including Washington, North Carolina, California, and Virginia, as a U.S. Marine Corps spouse. During these years, I worked in the field of occupational therapy in a variety of settings, including owning a business and providing services at the U.S. Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. In 2017, my family decided to permanently move back to Minnesota after my husband retired from the Marine Corps with 24 years of service. My position at Bethel seemed to be an excellent opportunity to serve military families in Minnesota and at Bethel, two communities I love.
