Our Team



Founder/ President

Following her graduation from the London School of Economics, Dawn blazed a trail through the recruitment industry in the UK by running one of the most profitable Temporary Staffing Divisions in London. She moved to the U.S. because of her husband’s career as a professional soccer coach, and worked as Sales Executive at one of Chicago’s leading employment agencies. Among her many achievements is her national recognition as Top Sales Executive for the country in 1999. Dawn brings over 25 years of experience to her current role as Founder/President of City Personnel Inc. where she hires, trains, and manages professional recruiters who share her passion and commitment to staffing. This shared enthusiasm is based on developing long-lasting and trusting relationships with both companies and job seekers.

Dawn lives in Cranston with her husband Deven and her two children, Danny and Jess.

Recruitment Coordinator

As a Providence native, Amanda decided to venture out for her college experience and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Communications with a minor in Business Management from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. That being said, she has actually been a part of the workforce since the age of 15, as she truly enjoys helping others. Her previous experience as an Operations Coordinator allowed her to gain experience assisting employees internally within a company. A passion she wanted to continue to utilize and build upon, which is how she was led here to City Personnel.

In her spare time, when she isn’t working or volunteering, she loves a good book or anything adventurous (except if there are insects involved!) She and her husband Cornelio have been married for nearly two years now and love to travel, eat great food, and take long bike rides exploring the city together!
