Donna is an author and proud pet parent of two Portuguese Water Dogs, Jazz and Jive. These are her current and most passionate roles in life. Dogs have always been a significant influence and source of inspiration for Donna. As many people who have loved a dog will tell you, dogs teach us so much about life. They gift us with their constant, unconditional love and desire to be with us at all times. They give so much and ask for so little in return.
Across many years of the ups and downs of loving and being loved by her dogs, Donna became aware of her knowledge quotient about dog parenting growing from zero to being much more informed. Through personal reflection, she realized that being educated about her dogs' needs caused her to make different (and more informed) decisions about what was best for her dogs. The struggle with her first Portuguese Water Dog, Breezer, and the fulfilling journey to becoming the 'Super Pet Parent' she is today - these are the inspiration and foundation for all of Donna's endeavors, including Heartfelt Communications, The Jazz & Jive Show and now her book, "Being a Super Pet Parent: Everything You Need to Know to Foster a Long, Loving Relationship with Your Dog," a fun-filled, engaging & comprehensive resource for pet parenting.
Donna spent the first half of her professional career in the non-profit sector as an addiction counselor & the second half in the corporate business world where she developed her speaking and training skills. She also spent time as a nurse and flew with a national airline as a flight attendant. Since leaving the business world Donna created, wrote, produced and hosted her own TV show for four years. She is currently redesigning the former TV show in preparation for taking it to the internet as 'The Jazz & Jive Show.'
