More about Donna
I joined Blast…
To make an impact and support teammate and company growth
A cool part of my job is…
Working at a company that lives up to its core values. I’m inspired by my Blast teammates every day.
My consulting “philosophy” is…
Always do the right thing.
It’s not on my resume, but…
I love to travel and have made it to 19 countries so far!
One of my first jobs was…
Babysitting in my neighborhood. I felt a great sense of responsibility caring for my neighbors’ children and their home (plus they always had better food than my house).
The most interesting place I’ve traveled is…
Budapest, Hungary for a work trip and Ayers Rock in Australia for a personal trip.
My hobbies include…
Flipping houses, practicing Bikram Hot Yoga, hiking, and wine tasting 🙂
