Hi, I'm Dorianne - a career coach & strategist based in New York City. I coach, speak and write about how to identify and use your purpose in order to have a fulfilling and (financially) fruitful career.
I'm a sought-after speaker, writer and HR expert. My articles have appeared in many online publications, such as Forbes, Huffington Post and The Muse.
I began my career in Operations Management at Goldman Sachs before moving to HR. It was here I got my first taste of career coaching. Over the past 10 years, I've worked on top HR teams at other Investment Banks and Technology Firms in the New York City area.
Since launching my boutique career coaching agency in 2015, I've advised and coached mid to senior level women (and men!) from all industries and backgrounds.
Although I absolutely love what I do, one thing you should know about me right off the bat: I'm not your average career coach.
My philosophy on career success goes way deeper than LinkedIn profiles and networking events. Sure – those things are important, but they aren’t what’s going to get you to the promised land – which is that fulfilling career you’ve always wanted.
Whether you watch one of my videos on YouTube, listen to my podcast or hear one of my talks on stage, you’ll quickly realize that my true focus and commitment is to help you identify and leverage your divine purpose so you can have a fulfilling career (and life).
What I've realized in my 10+ years in corporate America is that the average career advice given to women and people of color doesn’t take into account the fact that we've got to work twice as hard as everyone else.
Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard you try, you're still more likely to be paid less, deal with the stigma of re-entering the workforce after having children, or be the only one with a seat at the table who looks like you.
My philosophy is simple: Focus on your fulfillment and the money, recognition and opportunities will follow. You've got to pursue purpose, not paychecks. It really is that simple.
It’s time to stop drifting through your work day without passion or direction.
Stop feeling overwhelmed and burned out.
Stop beating yourself up for not being happy with where you are in your career.
I’m your career girl and I want you to know – You got this.
