We had the good fortune of connecting with Dionne Perry and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dionne, what do you want people to remember about you?
I want my legacy to be that I cared about others especially our youth. I want others to remember that I gave it my all and tried my best to equip our youth for generational wealth.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m Dionne Perry, a Credit-Litologist, speaker, and published author. I’m on a mission to empower and educate adults and teens on the importance of maintaining a good credit score.

Growing up, I never learned how the credit process worked and the importance of maintaining a good credit score. Once I became an adult, I studied everything I could about the credit process. It was when I was denied an automobile loan that I understood that credit impacts every financial decision in life.

My life changed when I started understanding how the credit process works. That is when I realized I need to share what I learned with others. Maintaining a good credit score is attainable to everyone regardless of income. It’s time for people of all ages to learn how the credit process works. Your credit score impacts your decisions, future goals and even your family legacy. Wherever you may be on your financial journey take the next steps to become Credit-Lit.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I recently moved to the area. I’m still learning the hot spots. I love Toast on Lenox brunch! I also enjoy Ponce City marketplace.
