“Dionne has helped me develop my career path throughout multiple stages of my life, from student, to recent graduate, to young professional. As my supervisor during my internship at United Planning Organization she allowed me to gain new skills and complete major projects through guided leadership. Instead of giving me the answer when I came to her for input, she would ask me the questions that would allow me to discover the answer on my own. She always made sure that the tasks I was assigned were also valuable additions to my resume. I truly felt that she was personally invested in my success. The growth that Dionne fostered in me at UPO gave me a leg up when I entered the job search as a post-graduate. Even after I completed my term at UPO, she made sure to provide a glowing written reference on my LinkedIn page and other career networking sites.
“It was Dionne who ultimately connected me with a career opportunity at my current place of employment — the Institute for Policy Studies — through her Your PRMentor networking group, and I can’t thank her enough. She not only provided me with a direct contact to the hiring manager, but she also advocated for my skills as a reference. I ended up at my dream job — using my skills in writing, editing, and media relations to contribute to the movement for social justice. I wouldn’t be here without Dionne’s unwavering commitment to my professional development.”
Domenica Ghanem Communications Coordinator, Institute for Policy Studies
“For nearly five years I have had the pleasure and fortune of learning from, working with and being mentored by Dr. Dionne Clemons. As an undergraduate student and throughout the beginnings of my public relations career, Dionne has assisted me with her unwavering understanding of the communications industry and her willingness to help those around her achieve their goals. Both academically and professionally, Dionne is an asset to most who know her and an endless creative resource to those who have yet to realize they need her keen services.”

“I met Dr. Dionne Clemons as a student at Towson University in 2008. I was an older student who had worked in the public relations field for several years. She is without a doubt one of the best professors I have ever had. Her real-life experience coupled with practical instruction made for a spectacular learning environment.
“Since graduating I have kept in contact with Dr. Clemons, who has partnered with me on several PR events while working at Six Flags America as their Marketing Communications Manager. She has extensive knowledge on strategic planning, brand management and general PR applications. She has been an excellent mentor, investing in my success with her insight and knowledge. If your company needs someone who has PR street smarts, wisdom in strategic planning and the ability to judge your market you don’t need to look any further, Dr. Clemons is your best and only choice.”
Havilah Ross Marketing Communications Manager, Six Flags America, Inc.
“Thank you so very much for your expertise and willingness to assist my company with branding nuances. Earlier this year, you selected Ava Lyn Creations to participate in the Howard University Communications Department’s CapComm Lab program where a group of very skilled students rebranded ALC. This experience was both relevant and rewarding. Thank you, again.”

“Dionne Clemons is a God-send. In addition to helping me identify the right adjunct opportunity for me, she walked me through each step of learning the institution, learning the landscape of adjuncting, writing syllabi, navigating the administration, and preparing for the first day of class. She is invested in helping to prepare new academics for success in their classes and careers. It’s a talent, but you can also tell that it’s her passion. I’m grateful for her ongoing investment in me.”
