After working with the Jamaican Ministry of Finance and Planning, in 1998 she entered in the Jamaican classroom where she taught Mathematics for a period of about nine and a half years.She began writing Mathematics, A Simple View in 2002, after being encouraged by a former student, who pointed out the value of her math notes. This she completed in 2007.By nature, Dionne is expressive and thinks that Mathematics, although having a language of its own, need not be as complicated as some texts have it. As such, she has sought to make it as reader friendly as possible.
