Love Notes

"Dorianna presented at the PSALA retreat, Keep Pace with Change, on Structured Behavioral Interviews.   This topic was fairly new to our attendees and a little intimidating as it involved big data/metrics.  Our association is in the legal industry with firms that range in size from six to seven-hundred attorneys.  Needless to say the needs and resource of members are different.  Dorianna found a way to bring the information to each attendee in a way that was both inclusive and useful to all.  Her dynamic personality and warmth shined through even while discussing data/metrics – not an easy thing to do.  Our members left with practical tips and higher level of confidence. 
I cannot recommend Dorianna highly enough; she is truly superb."

"I have known Dorianna for 12 years. In that time I have watched her grow and embrace the inner strength that has prompted her to share her passion for helping others succeed.

Her drive and determination is second to no one I’ve ever meant. Once she develops a plan, she follows through until each detail is completed to her incredibly high standards. 
Dorianna is kind, while at the same time, being firm. She has an uncanny ability to show compassion and understanding at the exact right moment. As a result, she is able to push you outside of your comfort zone in a slow and adaptable way. 

I highly recommend Dorianna as an empowering and eloquent public speaker, as well as a smart, brave and capable business consultant.”

"I worked with Dorianna for a number of years at a large legal services corporation.  Dorianna was always solutions oriented, no matter what the issue.  We often encountered situations that we’d not yet been in before, and they were always attached to aggressive deadlines.  I particularly enjoyed working with Dorianna because she was unflappable.  She focused on what needed to be done, and led the team to identify and employ a plan to get the job done, not just to meet the deadline, but also to exceed the clients’ expectations.  Her ability to lead collaboratively while remaining laser focused on the overall objective is extremely rare."
