McMenemy was born in the United States and lives with her mother, father, and three sisters in Northborough, Massachusetts, where she attended Algonquin Regional High School. Her mother, Luisa, is from the Dominican Republic and Dorian has dual citizenship with both countries. She was the only female swimmer on the Dominican team and was named the Dominican Female Athlete of the Year.[1]

In 2015, she will be attending Wagner College in Staten Island, New York on a full athletic scholarship.[4][5]
