Donna has frequently been described by those who have worked with her as being a right brained big picture thinker, creative, passionate, and yet, still detail focused and analytical. She prefers to think of herself as the color TEAL, a combination of navy blue and green, blue for the high standards and customer experience focus of Hilton Hotels. A former Training Instructor and curriculum designer for Hilton’s customer loyalty marketing program, Hilton HHonors, Donna developed a passion for moving people from satisfied to delighted.
As a Girl Scout alumnae, and now Director of Volunteer Learning for Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, Donna blends the blue with the green that is in her blood to manage and lead a team of 120 equally passionate volunteer mentors and facilitators. Donna has served on national learning cohorts, presented her ‘Letting Girls Lead’ curriculum at GSUSA’s National Convention, and been awarded the Thanks Badge, the highest award possible for an individual whose ongoing commitment, leadership, and service has had an exceptional, measurable impact on meeting the mission-delivery goals and priorities of the entire council or the entire Girl Scout Movement. More recently, the social media group within her volunteer empowerment team received 2nd place in the AXIS Award category of Knowledge Management for their GSNETX Learning Channel micro-learning initiative on Facebook.
