She left SDP/NPE as the VP/GM of Publisher Relations and Agency Relations to pursue her own endeavors in the industry.

She since has created Priority One Clearing Services, LLC a well- respected and mature magazine clearing house. Dawn incorporated P-1 in July of 2008 and continues to expand its efforts as the industry changes. She is currently focused on the new acquisition mediums available through digital and on line programs in addition to sponsored/partnership/membership campaigns. P-1 has become a premier subscription agency in the industry.

Dawn has one son, JC who is a Mercer University graduate and helped her to launch Priority One and has become an integral partner in the business. The two of them together is a powerful combination for Priority One.

When Dawn is not working she enjoys time with her family and golf! But don’t be surprised to find her fishing because that is her true passion!

Jamie Cunningham
Jamie CunninghamDirector of Information Technology

Since writing his first application at age 15 for controlling inventory for a local restaurant, Jamie has been involved in software development in one capacity or another. After joining the Air Force, he was called upon to fix computers or write applications to help the companies he worked for, even though he was not in an I.T. role. He got his first job out of the Air Force because he had “Computer Programming” listed as a hobby on his resume, the job was for a Q.C. inspector for a circuit board manufacturer, but the manager also wanted several programs written, so he was hired. Jamie soon became a Q.C. supervisor and then crossed over into the engineering department. From there his career continued to spiral deeper into the realm of computers and Software Development and several years later he actually landed an official Software Developer job. Jamie has been an “official” software developer for 18 years now, but has been writing software for almost 30.

When I’m not at work you can find me outside doing Parkour, or practicing Kung Fu, or in the garage making stuff on my homemade CNC machine, or printing parts with my homemade Reprap 3D Printer, or I might be playing the bass with my band. I’ve also recently started making my own video games and am working on my first official game soon to be released on Steam!

Although, if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are playing, you’ll find me in front of the TV watching the game!
