My Passion

My passion is to support Black women in re-claiming their voices through consulting and mentorship. My purpose is to empower those who have lost their voice to find it; enliven those who have felt stagnant to stand strong; and excite those who have been pained by the process to find power in their potential.

My Projects

My projects communicate the importance of radical self-reflection and redemptive self-love. Working with ages 0-99, I have partnered with schools, churches, and other organizations as a speaker, workshop coordinator, seminar presenter, and more.

My Preaching

My preaching centers the promise of liberation in the Sacred Text. Whether in the military or a traditional church, my sermonic lens consistently focuses on centering God’s direct involvement with humanity and God’s power to meet our fears with faith; heal our hurts into hope; and transform our doubts into deliverance.

What They Say

I had a great experience with Dianna today! She was a great coach and walked me through the entire process as I prepare to enter the job market. She guided me through a few exercises to hone in on my objectives and was a great asset in articulating them into my resume. She explained every step we took in great detail and her creativity and attention to detail will definitely give me a step up on the competition in the job market. I am thrilled with the end result of my resume and cover letter!

Dr. Watkins-Dickerson is a young woman who has made it her business to weave academic and community concerns in a unique and palatable manner. In my observation of her in church I have watched her embrace the youth as well as the elderly with the same amount of care and love. It is her intent to empower all members of our community by using her academic prowess and common touch. She continues to be a powerful force for positive change in this community and in our denomination and she does so using her intellect and experience. At the core of her being she has a desire to find or create sustainable ministries that will stand the test of time.

Dianna is an excellent expert in resume and cover letter writing. The techniques and suggestions she provides are from experiences that yield successful results. I’m looking forward to receiving further services from DNWD Coaching & Consulting.

Dr. Watkins-Dickerson’s work in womanist rhetorical theory brings a much-needed focus to the intersections of religion, race, and gender. Not only has she served as a research assistant for the Henry McNeal Turner Project, which is a digital humanities project curating the rhetoric of this AME bishop, military chaplain, and leader, her teaching and research presentations not only evidence a keen ability to articulate the particularities of women and African American communication studies. While evaluating her instruction, I have witnessed her passion to engage student’s critical thinking skills; encourage them to think civically; and lesson plan effectively.

Dianna was so pleasant to work with! I absolutely loved her energy and passion for what she does. She was just as invested as myself, in making sure my resume is the best it could possibly be. I will definitely be using her services in the future and highly recommend working with her.
