I get tons of emails, texts and voice messages from different women, from different backgrounds and different circumstances.

The common theme?

They're all asking some variation of the same question: “How in the world did you bounce back from being laid off and depressed - basically lost - to becoming the *only* black woman Director at your company!?”

After about the 100th time, I was over it.

I mean, I love connecting and supporting black women on their journey to career success, but I was just tired of giving everyone the same “here's how I did it, and how you can too” story.

So, what'd I do? 

I gathered my thoughts and organized my process in a way that could be repeated and started connecting with women 1:1 to help them get results in their career.

This is how my career strategy sessions were born!

    During your strategy session you'll learn:

    • What your top 5 strengths are and how to make sure you're using these strengths in your career in the right way

    • How to create your D.R.E.A.M. job profile so you can finally love going into work every single day

    • How to identify the next step in your career journey (project assignment, promotion, leadership position, getting a mentor or sponsor, etc.)


    By the time you're finished with your strategy session, you'll have the clarity and confidence you need to level up in your career!

    My role in our session is to provide you with the thought leadership, partnership and deep HR knowledge you need to take your career to the next level.

    I'll help you diagnose the obstacles keeping you from getting where you truly want to be in your career and prescribe specific actions to help you get unstuck!

    "Yes girl yes! The career strategy session is a great experience. 1 to 1 time with Dorianne. We assessed where I am in my career currently, my true interests and where I want to be in the future. Dorianne accessed all aspects of our conversation and came up with and action based strategy broken down with specific time frames to spend in each area." -K. Pollard


    tell me if this sounds familiar...

    • Are you tired of feeling completely stuck and unfulfilled in your career?

    • Do you struggle with believing it’s even possible to achieve your career goals?

    • Are you fed-up with your constant procrastination and self-sabotage when it comes to your career, but you don’t know how to change?
    • Do you want to feel more confident and capable in anything you put your mind to?
    • Do you wish someone could just provide you with a step-by-step process on how to get clear on what you truly want so you could see immediate changes in your career TODAY?



    I know how you feel.

    Back in 2011 I was laid off from my job. And even though it was a job that I hated and that was making me physically ill - it still sucked to get laid off. And these jokers had the nerve to do it two weeks before my wedding.

    I was so sad and I felt like a failure. Yes, it was a toxic environment, but still - how could they lay me off!? I was depressed and defeated and instead of enjoying being a newlywed, I spent the better part of a year sitting on the couch, binge watching Netflix and feeling sorry for myself. I couldn't even bring myself to look for another job.

    I'd hit rock bottom and even contemplated packing my bags, leaving my life and new husband and running away to God knows where to do God knows what. I was ready to give up on myself and that's when I knew something had to change. 



    We'll spend our time thoroughly assessing where you are now vs. where you want to be in your career and we’ll develop a blue print that'll help you accomplish your goals. 


    You’ll have unlimited email support for 30 days following your strategy session to ask all of your questions - doesn't matter how big or small.


    You'll get access to my growing library of career development training and resources as well as access to my private Facebook group - the Career Success Circle. 


    I can only take on a handful of strategy sessions each month and even though I try to accommodate as many people as I can, sessions typically sell out. 

    "Dorianne really helped me to bring some clarity to why I wasn't getting called back after my interviews. her advice was SPOT on. After speaking with her, I was getting interviews left and right! And finally got an offer." -T. Johnson

    I didn't know it at the time, but having to pick myself up off the couch and turn my career around would be a huge turning point in my life.

    Leveraging what I now call my D.R.E.A.M. Job search process, I got crystal clear on what I wanted in my career, created a step-by-step action plan to get there and landed the six figure job of my dreams..all in less than 30 days. 

    What started as a last resort experiment in changing my own life, actually changed my entire career trajectory which eventually morphed into Your Career Girl - a boutique career coaching company for high achieving and ambitious women.

    I can help. Take a look at the four questions you should ask yourself to figure out if you'd be a good fit for a 90-minute strategy session with me!

    four questions to ask yourself before applying for a strategy session:

    1. Am I able/willing to put in the time, energy and effort it takes to achieve my career goals?
    2. Do I understand there are no "quick fixes" when it comes to taking my career to the next level?
    3. Am I interested in being "coached" and leaning on the expertise of a HR professional and career strategist?
    4. Do I have the financial resources (cost of strategy session is $299) to invest in my career right now?

    If you've answered YES to ALL four questions and you're ready to up-level your career in the next 30-90 days...

    what my clients have to say

    I don’t think you know how you have changed my life. I have a job I’m pretty happy with but as we dug deeper into my brand and my Why, I know I have so much more to offer than what I’m currently doing.

    Dorianne has been a wonderful resource in helping me find my passion and has kept me motivated in my search for the perfect job. She has become my accountability partner while I carve out my niche and grow my side business.  Dorianne actually cares about her clients and wants them to do well. I will continue to recommend her to friends and family as I think she has a wealth of knowledge and experience to learn from. I can’t thank her enough for her help.
