Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Dominic Lawson is a US Army Veteran who also attended National American University, majoring in business administration. More recently, Lawson developed a passion for podcasting, gaining experience by creating, writing, editing, hosting, and producing podcasts including The Startup Life (business), Nothin But Buckets (sports), and Just Blerdn’ (Black nerd culture). He was initially drawn to the medium as “a tool to help people,” but he admits the audience feedback is pretty great, too. “I love to hear people say that an episode resonates with them.”
Lawson joined the Meadows Behavioral Healthcare family in 2021 as podcast producer, editor, and host. Responsible for cultivating a diverse slate of guests ranging from mental health experts to addiction recovery professionals and beyond, he enjoys the challenge of meeting the audience’s expectations. While his position at MBH may not be clinical or involve daily interaction with patients, Lawson sees the potential to use his craft to make a difference. That’s why he takes seriously the platform he’s been given to share valuable information and resources that can change lives.
Married with three children, Lawson unwinds by playing video games, watching movies (he admits he loves Marvel and Hindi films), or tinkering around with new podcast ideas.
