Coaching and Speaking


This is Donna!
I’m a coach, speaker and writer with years of personal experience in life’s big changes. A Master’s in Human Development with a specialty in gender differences, training by Masters and Johnson and passion for helping men and women discover the joy that finding yourself and discovering what you want in your life can bring.

I can show you how to find the happiness you so deserve!

Here’s what we can do together!

Here are a few of the ways I help my clients…and  organizations seeking a really dynamic speaker to guarantee their event will be a rockin’ success!

“Men and Women…What We Don’t Know CAN Hurt Us”

There are 5 things about women and about men that, when we understand them, can bring both together. I’ll give you the “Magic Sauce” to help you find greater happiness in your relationships. You’ll see how much easier it is to get what you need and want with ease. 

“Finding Love Again”

Are you tired of watching sunsets alone? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to share a glass of wine by the fire again? Believe it’s possible? Are you ready to do whatever it takes to find someone with whom to share this chapter of your amazing life? Then, let me be your partner on the journey to loving again. 

It’s impossible to fail at love. Love is ageless and it’s never too late. With every ending, there’s a juicy new beginning just waiting for you to be open and ready to love again. 

“How to be Sure Your Retirement is a Dream, Not a Nightmare”

Many of us wait all our lives to retire. We dream of playing golf, reading, writing a memoir, traveling and loving every minute of it. Most people find that first six months to be joyful, and then, something begins to erode. Happiness can turn to feeling lost and unhappy. It doesn’t have to happen!  Prepare, learn ahead of time about who you are, what makes you happy and how to get it after that retirement party! And if you’re already there and feel like something is missing, you can turn it around by finding out just what you need to feel the rewards of a lifetime of hard work! 

“Finding Happiness at Work…Yes, Really!”

Did you know that over 90% of people in the US, are NOT happy when they go to work. How does that happen? Our work needs to be a reflection of our authentic self, what makes us excited, purposeful and in sync with why we’re here in this life. 

You CAN find success and happiness in the right work. It’s all about knowing what you really love and going for the gold! Let me take you on the journey to finding work that will make Monday mornings wonderful. 


“He Just Doesn’t Listen…or, I Can Never Make Her Happy!”

This is the theme of almost every relationship. It doesn’t have to be this way. All it takes is a willingness to learn how to communicate, listen and understand what to expect of one another. Take the time to learn what’s getting in the way, what’s realistic, and how to bridge the gender gap. If you’re ready, I can help you find just what it takes to find more happiness together. I will work with individuals or couples who want to rekindle the love they once had…or learn more about how to find it in a new relationship.
