I really enjoyed our coaching conversations. They were a gift that came at the right time in my life.                                                                 Elia Robles Manager, Fund Development, YWCA Vancouver

The unexpected benefits were the realization that I might not be doing what is right for me in my current role, and though a valuable experience it was, I came to realize that it might be time to move on. Donna had incredible patience in helping me to realize what I was looking for and how to achieve it.
Angela Di Bernardo, Assistant Product Manager, Membership Services

Your comments were really profound and the more I thought about it during the evening the more I began to realize that there was a lot of truth in your comments.  I really felt that our discussion was quite a breakthrough for me, so wanted to thank you for your help.

Camille Reid, Executive Director, Human Resources for the BC Health Authority Shared Services Organization

Donna inspired me to develop my vision of acquiring a position that would enable me to grow and learn new skills specific to developing into a new manager.

She understands issues in the community, in individuals and the big picture in business and imparts vast knowledge from experience.   She shared information in how to set goals at our very first meeting, and exercises that enabled me to think of alternatives and empowered me to choose what was best for me in terms of my goals and objectives.

Anyone lucky enough to spend time with Donna can easily see how gifted she is in empowering others.
