Our Team

Client Leads

Dawn Bartnik

Jana Tulloch

Jana founded Tulloch Consulting in 2013 while still working full-time in the public sector, with the goal of creating a consulting agency that would enable small businesses to thrive through great people practices. In early 2016, she was able to focus her full attention on the business and it has successfully grown since then to serve clients across North America, Australia, and many other countries.

Her values inspire her approach to work: transparency, honesty, and collaboration. She is a firm believer in two things: continuous learning, and that everyone has something positive to contribute, regardless of experience or role.

When not working she can be found doing the mom-shuttle to softball and lacrosse with her younger kids (there’s five in total), or travel planning: her goal is to visit all 7 continents (4 down, 3 to go!) as well as a very long list of other destinations (Malta, Croatia, and Iceland top the list).

Dawn joined Tulloch Consulting in 2020 as a Client Lead and provides strategic and tactical support across all HR pillars. In 2019 Dawn founded Coast Recruitment & HR Services which provides on-demand HR and Recruitment expertise aimed at helping organizations secure and retain top talent, as well as navigate change in systems and processes.


Dawn has worn many hats over her 15 years in HR prior to founding her company, and has continued to grow her expertise through partnering with companies across North America and across numerous industries (actually, pretty much all industries!)


She is passionate about meeting new people and learning about their organizations, their systems, and their cultures, and over the years has cultivated deep insight into what attracts, motivates, and engages top performers. When not working, Dawn can be found relaxing on her back deck, planning her next reno.

HR Generalists

Shannon Braun

Shannon Braun joined Tulloch Consulting in 2017 and has been relied upon to support a wide range of client projects. She has gained an extensive HR Generalist knowledge base through her work in the non-profit sector and particularly relishes projects where HR strategy, research, and employment law are involved. She is also the mastermind behind Public Safety Resumes.


A continuous learner, Shannon is always looking to gain new knowledge from each client and project and use her powers for good to create meaningful, efficient, HR solutions. She is a mom to two very energetic girls that keep her very busy and, in her spare time, volunteers as a Board Director for a local non-profit. She is also a lover of indie music, fiction novels, and creative writing.

Laura Flores

Laura is from Costa Rica, born and raised, with a background in psychology. She chose to pursue Human Resources right after completing her undergrad studies, receiving a Master's in Organizational Psychology. She also completed her certification in Human Resources Management in Dublin, Ireland, and is certified by the CIPD. She's worked in HR since then for over 10 years as an analyst, generalist, and business partner.

Laura is passionate about HR and helping organizations understand the importance of fulfilled and happy employees to achieve not only their personal and professional goals but the company's objectives as well. On the weekends, you'll find her spending time with her family in nature, or pursuing one of the many adventurous activities on her bucket list (such as skydiving, bungee jumping, and scuba diving).


Prathima Bhargav

Born and raised in Bengaluru, known as the Silicon Valley of India, Prat now resides in the South Windsor, Hartford area of Connecticut in the United States. She is a passionate HR professional with a steadfast and determined work ethic, and is passionate about buildling top talent teams and helping both employees and organizations thrive in a positive talent ecosystem. As a committed DEI advocate, flexible and constantly striving for improvement is the best way to describe our in-house recruiter.


Prat enjoys hiking in the New England area and visiting all the beaches in nearby Cape Cod and Rhode Island. She is also a certified Zentangle teacher and an artist, taking online art classes during her free time. She looks forward to one day mentoring other women who plan to move to the USA for the first time and assist them in their career transition.

Admin / Marketing

Ashton Thompson

Ashton works as Tulloch Consulting's Admin & Marketing Assistant, and can be found developing our newsletters and other marketing initiatives as well as providing administrative support to the team.


Her passion is helping small businesses improve their organizational systems to drive better performance, and taking care of the tasks on the team's to-do list. Ashton has experience in Education and Travel, and when not working, you'll find her spending time with her family and traveling as much as she can. 

Ashton spends her time between her home in the mountains outside of Madrid, Spain, and her home state of South Carolina in the USA.
