MEMBER SPOTLIGHT – Dawn & Chris Ponico

We are incredibly proud of all of our LOOM Coworking members and love seeing their growth, personally and professionally. Learn more about Dawn & Chris Ponico

Who are Dawn & Chris Ponico?  Both Chris and I grew up in the Hudson Valley in New York.  We moved to Atlanta in 2008, after our second child was born.   We lived in Peachtree City, GA (a suburb of Atlanta known for its 90 miles of golf cart trails) until 2016 when we moved to Waxhaw, NC, which is where we now call home.

What is your company and who are your customers?  Dawn works as a Chief People Officer for a Technology and Healthcare staffing firm which places specialized technology and healthcare talent at companies of all sizes.  Chris works as a General Manager for a Property Management firm, and he specializes in managing apartments, hotels and senior living.


What do you like to do for fun?  We both love hiking and doing Pilates together.

Other than your work, what are you most passionate about?  We both love to travel with our two teenage children.  Our favorite family vacation spot over the years has been Hilton Head Island; however, in 2021 we had the opportunity to go to Hawaii for a couple of weeks and next year we have plans for a Mediterranean cruise!  When we’re not traveling, we can usually be found at home hanging out in the backyard with our 4-year-old black lab, Brody.

Why did you initially come to LOOM?  We came to LOOM because our son goes to school at Westminster Christian Catawba School in Rock Hill; however, we live in Waxhaw and the commute has been pretty rough!  The LOOM space saves us from having to drive 20 miles each way, back and forth! The people at LOOM have been so welcoming and helpful.  We’re so thankful to have this space and to now be part of this community.

Where can we find out more about you? Both of us can be found on LinkedIn and Facebook
