    Donna R. Wood is a graduate of Interstate Business College in the Medical and Computer Sciences. In 2017, she earned her Certification in Existential Well-Being from KU Leuven. With over three decades of experience in writing, speaking, and most importantly, real-world experience in assisting others in navigating the changes of life, her view is radically different. Donna appreciates, and shares with listeners, that life is not about what has occurred in the past, or even what might lay-in-wait years into the future. It’s about the here and now. Donna works with individuals, groups and organizations who want to invest in a vision to: · Live and work meaningfully; · Capitalize on Strengths; and · Focus on creating strong businesses or organizations. Donna is a published author, speaker and social theorist. In 2014, Donna retired from the nonprofit industry and made the decision to expand on Butterfly Phoenix.
