About

Welcome to Donna's Big Red Chair. I’m here to help you re-discover yourself in and out of the workplace. I truly believe all people have the answers “inside them” and all they need is someone to ask the right questions, listen deeply, and to calmly guide them to their answers. Being able to be that “someone” is what I love to do.

  • You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren't.

  • The body wants balance, peace and joy. Your moral compass can be found here when you are ready to listen.

  • Whatever you do with your life—whatever you end up achieving or not achieving—the great gift you have in you to give to the world is the gift of who you alone are...
    Frederick Buechner
  • Believing, trusting, letting go of our own timetables…not easy! But we can begin today to learn a new way of thinking, to replace our brick walls with curtains that allow the good to flow through.

Donna

As you and your organization begin to work with me you will see that though my work is practical, useful and my style is directive; I also believe in the soul. It wants us to do the work we are here to do, and to find love and joy and happiness in our lives at work, and in our relationships outside the office.
