“At any moment, the decision you make can change the course of your life forever.” — Tony Robbins


Like so many people, Donna discovered her calling later in life. After having completed her AA in Business Administration from San Joaquin College and her BA in Legal Studies from Humphreys University, she spent 22 years in small business as the owner of a 42-acre almond farm. Donna subsequently earned a Culinary Arts degree from Le Cordon Bleu, spent 14 years as an event planner and caterer, and another four years in restaurant management. Finally, she went on to win several corporate sales awards as an Outside Sales Representative for Sysco Foods. All of these pursuits involved working closely with her customers, developing and refining her services based on their needs, but eventually, Donna realized that she wanted to make even more of a personal impact in people’s lives.


Donna’s passion for encouraging people to invest in themselves and their dreams led her to study Strategic Coaching with Tony Robbins, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy with Tad James, and goal-setting with Michael Hyatt. “I look forward to working with you, and watching your goals become realities!”
