One morning while drinking a skinny vanilla latte and reading an advice column, Dory Wilson, founder of Your Office Mom, disagreed with a response to a query posted by a young professional. After yelling "WHAT THE HELL" and scaring the dogs from a sound slumber, she decided that was the proverbial last straw! She was tired of seeing others sharing career tips on news segments or writing books on topics in her wheelhouse. After ranting for a while (one of her stronger traits, second only to her knack for giving advice (solicited or otherwise) she decided it was time she shared insights from her successful career with others.

That sparked conversations with her family and soon after the launch of Your Office Mom. Dory's peers, direct reports, and daughter Lindsay and her friends always valued Dory’s “cool mom” approachability,  non-judgmental attitude and keen insight. That moniker follows her to this day. Her practical, down-to-earth vibe is informative yet fun. In other words, she knows what’s going on, she can be one of the crowd (albeit the oldest) but still knows how to dress for her age.

That’s the story and we’re sticking to it.
