Dionne's story 

Growing up on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Dionne realized early on that hard work was essential for achieving her goals. Her father's long hours enabled her mother to be a constant presence in their lives, a blessing Dionne cherished. Her mother's involvement with Christmas Around the World sparked Dionne's enduring love for giving and the festive season. At 16, while attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Dionne juggled three jobs, showcasing her determination and work ethic.

Despite modest means, Dionne's family life was rich with homemade dinners and abundant love. Her parents, Jason, and her sisters remain her closest confidants and friends. After graduating from AIP, Dionne's strong-willed and independent nature made it clear that working for others wasn't her path. She dabbled in a few jobs, but after being disciplined for overworking, she used her time to learn about computers, a skill only briefly touched upon in her final semester.

This self-taught period was a turning point, leading Dionne to start her own business with guidance from her parents. Her journey was marked by trial and error, but she persevered. She launched her business, Total Grafx, in a small business center in Monessen, and has been self-employed ever since. Her company flourished into PrimeTime Design Co., creating logos and promotional products for various clients, including Dance Mom's - Abby Lee Miller, JetStream Ground Services, C.Harper Chevrolet, HROIC, Carnegie Library of Homestead, and many more, including labor unions like the Steamfitters 449, Teamsters 250.

In the early 2000s, Dionne ventured into a partnership to buy another company, achieving over $1,000,000 in sales. However, the partnership eventually led to the company's downfall, a challenging period for her. During this time, Dionne's interest in real estate grew. She decided to pursue it part-time alongside her graphic design career. Once she closed her first real estate deal, there was no looking back. She found a way to blend her creative skills with her real estate ventures.

Eventually, Dionne shifted to focus primarily on real estate, making design work a part-time, case-by-case endeavor. This transition in 2004 led to the past six years and owning her own company, Realty ONE Group Gold Standard. Her creativity played a significant role in selling numerous homes in the Pittsburgh area. Partnering with Mike Hanlon to purchase they franchise, they brought a disruptive force to the Pittsburgh real estate market.

Through ups and downs, Dionne's resilience has always been a cornerstone of her journey, embodying a spirit of never giving up.
