Having been raised in both peninsulas of Michigan uniquely qualifies Donna to understand the area and the people. She obtained her real estate license at the age of 19. Since graduating from Eastern Michigan University, she has focused her energies on helping others understand their communities.
In 2009, Donna authored a guide to the Mackinac region for Tourist Town Guides. Her work resulted in the book "Mackinac: A Guide to Mackinac Island and Mackinaw City" which saw two editions. This was the pinnacle of ten years of work with the Mackinac Area producing marketing materials and learning the community.
Today, Donna enjoys working full time in real estate in Petoskey and Northern Michigan. Her life experiences have taught her the value of listening well, researching and the importance of finding the right place to call home.
