At the age of 44, at the top of her game, Donna woke up with the realization that “all this” wasn’t “all that!” She was mentally stuck, emotionally unfulfilled, physically exhausted, and spiritually bankrupt. After a 28-year long run as a corporate marketing executive who “had it all” Donna enrolled herself in a master’s program in Spiritual Psychology which changed her life in every possible way. Donna now supports the global transformation of consciousness on the planet today by assisting clients worldwide to personally evolve to new heights of meaningful success, personal fulfillment, and spiritual aliveness using the principles and practices of Spiritual Psychology. Donna offers inspiring classes, workshops, and transformative in-depth life-coaching programs designed to help you break free of the self-imposed limitations and old stories of “not-enough-ness”. The results are revealed through a sense of authentic empowerment helping people trust their higher self, honor their human- self, and hold with reverence their whole self who makes this epic life journey. Donna assists individuals and groups to live into their entelechy - the fullest realized expression of who they came here to be, from the inside out.

Author of “Original Wisdom: Harness the Power of the Authentic You,” and a graduate of the University of Santa Monica Donna holds a Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology with an emphasis on Consciousness, Health, and Healing as well as her Soul-Centered Professional Coaching and Soul-Centered Facilitation certifications. Donna stepped down from the role of director of marketing with The Ritz-Carlton and has since combined her business savvy, intuitive gifts, and soul-centered coaching expertise to make a more meaningful contribution to the world. Her heartfelt intention is to raise the vibration of the planet by supporting people to awaken to their true nature leading to a more intentional, balanced, authentically empowered life filled with aliveness, meaning, and purpose.
