Donna is a true leader in this field. She inspires others to want to contribute, and then through coaching makes sure they are successful in each step on the learning curve. Donna's understanding of how adults learn and her ability to integrate new technology seamlessly into that experience is a powerful force for advancing the virtual educational experience.
