Biography

Describe your job.
My role is to manage the relationship between several service providers on the Far Eastside who are focusing on moving opportunity youth into ABC: A Job, A Better Job, or a Career.

What do you love about Indy?
One of the things I truly love about Indy is our sports community.  I am a cheerleader (I really was a cheerleader in high school), so I love being in the stands at all levels of sporting events, whether I’m rooting for the underdog or for the champion!

What is the most important trait for job-seekers to have?
Commitment. As a teen, my mother would often remind me: “looking for a job is a full-time job.”

A little more about Dionne…
I adore elephants and have an eclectic collection of elephants that I have gathered from my travels around the world.
