About Us

Donna Burnett



Ext. 101


After an early career in law firm human resources, temporary staffing management and direct-hire staffing, Donna was inspired to found Contact 1. She wanted to create a space where candor met customer experience and build a team where quality standards were applied equally.

Donna is continually driven by the need to resolve hiring challenges for client companies while helping the careers of talented candidates along the way. Her direct, straightforward approach has garnered the loyalty of DC’s top for-profits, non-profits, and law firms for over twenty-six years. The connections forged with candidates are just as strong, resulting in long-term partnerships, repeat placements, and an extensive referral network.

Outside of Contact 1, Donna enjoys gardening, tap-dance, music, yoga and being with 2 cats, family and friends.
