What people don’t know about Donna

My passion is to help make the world a better place for all lifekind. I am a Soulutionest and a voice for Nature, born and raised in the suburbs of New Jersey. After graduating from the Evergreen State College Organic Farm Program in 1982, I found myself on a soul-searching journey to Alaska. I started the first natural foods bakery and café in the state, which I ran with my husband for 37 years. During this time, I pioneered a variety of successful eco-businesses — including the first national organic cocoa and chocolate syrup under the brand AH!LASKA.

I love encouraging others to live like the future matters in ways that better themselves and the planet. My motto is, “Why retire when I can inspire.”

I live on the Big Island of Hawaii with my husband and a bevy of beautiful animals and plants, where I run a successful life and business coaching practice. My husband and I offer healing retreats at their upcountry tropical farmstead, where every day begins and ends in Nature. I share my passion and skills for the culinary arts and the island’s gifts through Nature Therapy and photography.

When I am not working with clients or writing, you’ll find me hiking in Nature or swimming in the ocean, and always, with my dogs, photographing my love of life.

My talent is working with those striving to make a difference in their lives and careers while staying healthy and those on a quest to find more meaning in life. Balancing work style with lifestyle can be fun, empowering, & profitable, and making the connection between Food for People & the Plant can heal Mother Earth, and us is life-changing. One bite at a time, one choice at a time, we make a difference. Together we can build our immune system and the microbiome of the earth.

EBC Wins

Being that I am relatively new, I have not seen any tangible opportunities yet other than good connections for inviting people on my weekly live podcast, A Dose of Positivity, and introductions to other wonderful members. I have interviewed several EBC members.I look forward to and anticipate more people reaching out to me to be a guest on their shows.
When my new subscriptions come out this fall, I expect the EBC will be a great asset to the launch.♥️

The people that have been most helpful, and I am grateful.
