About Dionne
I was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia, a city in the southeastern part of the state. I always enjoyed applied mathematics in school; therefore, when I was awarded a scholarship in the Dozoretz National Institute for Minorities in Applied Sciences at Norfolk State University, I leaped at the opportunity.

As part of the program, students were strongly encouraged to obtain summer internships. I was fortunate to spend a summer working in a biostatistics unit of the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Thus, my love of biostatistics began. After completing my graduate studies, I became employed at the US Food and Drug Administration.

My greatest accomplishment is the daily knowledge that my statistical leadership and expertise positively contribute to ensuring the efficacy and safety of drugs and therapeutic biologics for the public. As a statistician, I make a difference in the lives of others. This is an honor and a joy!
