Donna’s Workbench


As a classic overachiever, I always have a lot on my plate.
Truth be told, I like it that way!

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track, and then again, sometimes it’s fun to see it all in one place. Some of these are done, some are evolving, and others are in various states of creation or dreaming. So I created this Projects page as much for myself, as for you to take a peek at what I am working on and in.  If you see something you that inspires you, intrigues you, or makes you want to know more, shoot me an email.

Or, if you see something that makes you say: “that’s cool…I’d love to collaborate on that with Donna”, shoot me an email!

Personal Environments Project blog  

When you want to make a change in your life, you need to change at least some of our environments to support and nourish that change.Well designed (inner and outer) environments can naturally increase happiness, performance, and effectiveness and more, in effect, pulling us forward into the change we want to create.  Changing environments can support the vision and goals you have and changes you want to make.

The first step is to become aware of all your environments, determine which are and which are not working for you, and then design them to support the you that you want to become.

And that’s what the Personal Environments Project is about.


The Coach Initiative

I currently serve as the Treasurer of this 501c3 organization which I co-founded.  The Coach Initiative brings pro bono coaching support to nonprofit organizations and other not-for-profit projects.  Our mission:  Through coaching, we support nonprofit initiatives worldwide to make a greater positive impact.

Pursuant to our mission, we connect good people with good people. We offer coaching support in order to exponentially expand the positive global impact of projects that focu on the betterment of the human condition and on uplifting the human spirit.

Because we are confident that coaching works, we know that projects supported by coaches will have an even greater positive impact on the world. Partnering with other not-for-profit organizations, The Coach Initiative helps them to deliver on their missions.

Serendipitous Events

A special kind of events company.  If you have a reason to convene people into a space for learning, sharing, educating, business, connecting, teaching, joining, caring, playing, celebrating, honoring, achieving, acknowledging, or simply being…and you want to accomplish it in an effortless, efficient, wildly unique, meaningful, powerful manner …

Serendipitous Events can support you to have that happen.

Transformational Leadership Council

I currently sit on the board of the Transformational Leadership Council.  A group of the most inspiring, incredible people on the planet (and perhaps off the planet as well.)   The Transformational Leadership Council was founded July of 2004 by Jack Canfield so leaders of personal and organizational transformation could support each other in their contributions to the world. We are a group of thought leaders, speakers, authors, coaches, trainers, researchers, consultants, and others who are leaders in the fields of personal and professional development.  We meet twice a year to network, connect, and learn from each other in order to enhance our effectiveness and contribution in the world.
