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.



Business Development Manager

Brittany is a Rhode Island native who joined the City Personnel team as a Recruitment Specialist in 2018. After playing division one soccer and graduating with a degree in Communication from Central Connecticut State University, she then returned to RI to work as an Account Manager for one of the largest youth soccer companies in the US. Along her career path, she discovered a passion for cultivating relationships which took her to City Personnel, where she has since helped create numerous relationships and new career opportunities for many fellow Rhode Islanders and hopes to continue doing so for many years to come!


Brittany loves playing with her dog Winston, enjoying the outdoors, and traveling with her husband Joe and daughter Ava, as well as hanging out with her friends, exploring all that RI (and beyond) has to offer!


Recruitment Manager

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!



Recruitment Specialist

Megan is a graduate of Bryant University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and minors in Human Resources and Spanish. She spent six months of her college career studying in Seville, Spain, where she further developed her passion for meeting new people and helping others. This experience prompted Megan to pursue a career in Human Resources rather than Accounting, where she felt she could make a real difference in peoples’ lives. City Personnel gives her the opportunity to continue helping others while using her business education to make the best possible matches for both companies and candidates.

Megan loves to travel; during her time abroad, she visited 12 different countries! During her free time, she enjoys spending time outside and trying different restaurants with her fiancé, Jeff.

City Personnel gives her the opportunity to work closely with our temporary employees to help them develop their professional careers with advice, resources, and much more. She is currently continuing her education in Business Administration at the Community College of Rhode Island.

Adamary enjoys traveling, trying new foods, and creating unforgettable experiences with her loved ones.
