“Donna is Amazing and Fun to Work With!! With her help and expertise my breathing capacity has been greatly enhanced. Now, when I facilitate seminars, I don’t run out of breath while speaking. Her knowledge in the field of voice and specialized techniques taught me how the diaphragm works and how to properly utilize it. By practicing these techniques I can control my breath while speaking for long intervals. I strongly recommend Donna to anyone who wants to improve their public speaking techniques.”

Jerry Seinfeld - “Remember, the next time that you’re at a funeral, most people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy.”  I will help you change that!



You are unique with your own needs.  I do not fit you into a “one size fits all” category.  After all, if it were that simple any presentation skills books or courses taken in the past, would have catapulted millions of people into the corner office long ago.  It hasn’t!  We will work on your tailor made program together until you are completely satisfied and are getting the results you need.  To help you understand what to expect here are some benchmarks.  They are:

  1. You will see great improvements in 4-6 weeks when attending training and doing your homework on a consistent basis.  Should you want to reduce an accent 6-8 weeks is a more realistic expectation.
  2. Those interested in making broader changes in specific areas that are causing more severe difficulties due to ingrained bad habits or severe voice weakness may decide to go further with training.  Training of approximately 3 months is a reasonable expectation.
  3. High achievers and/or those who aspire to be the head in their field often choose to train for as long as necessary to develop the voice and delivery they want that best represents them and their business.


”I went to Donna with the intent of improving my voice – not my singing voice but my speaking one. As an actress, I was finding that the pitch and tone of my voice was not working to my advantage. Donna took me through a series of exercises and right after the first lesson I started to see improvement. She was able to connect my voice with my brain and show me the difference that focus and breath control could make on my voice. Genius! She showed me how singing relates to speaking which in turn relates to character.

She helped me to see, what fifteen years of classical training could not – that the placement of breath and sound are key to a great result!”
