Donna is a communication specialist and passionate team-builder. As the business development director for an international design firm, she recruited, integrated and catalyzed joint venture and consortium partners to secure and execute major design commissions including a new Children’s Hospital in Israel and a new Brain and Cognitive Research Center at Brandeis University. Twelve years ago, Donna’s search for ways to optimize team performance connected her with the LEGO Serious Play methodology. She worked for many years with Robert Rasmussen, LEGO Group director of research and development and chief architect of LEGO Serious Play. Igniting the power of teams and teamwork continues to make her heart sing.
In addition to the United States, Donna has worked in the Philippines and Egypt so she loves to bring people from different cultures together. She is the 2013 recipient of the WTS Boston (Women’s Transportation Seminar) Diversity Leadership Award.
Donna holds an MBA from Northeastern University, studied architecture and interior design at the University of the Philippines, and completed training to become an Agile Coach.
