“Though we work 3,000 miles apart, on different teams, in different regions, Donna’s partnership is integral to my success and that of my team. Recently, she was a key partner in adapting a leadership training program for a cross-regional launch. She is quick to leverage existing resources and collaborate to ensure the best experience for Team Members. She is warm, authentic, caring and asks great questions – she’s often the voice for peers who aren’t brave enough to speak up. And, as for design, her true passion, I think her works speaks for itself!”

Reminiscent of traditional bridal party wedding henna, her beautiful, creative designs could be customized for everyone, allowing them to be as bold or discrete as they liked. Donna is so great to work with and her positive energy will add to the joy of any event."
