Donnabella helped me take my career to the next level. I was really afraid to truly commit and make acting my priority. I've finally stopped making excuses, and I've taken back control over my self-sabotaging habits!

DB helps me remember why I love acting so much. She's so helpful when I have questions that I have no one else to turn to for answers. She's great with coaching acting, and amazing at helping me boost my business.

I've worked with DB on numerous projects. She definitely knows her stuff, and I'd recommend her for audition prep, career guidance, and even some much needed inspiration!

I am so thankful I have someone to work with me on my marketing materials, and career guidance!! I get time focused on me that I wouldn't get in any group setting, couldn't ask for more.

Donnabella is so fun to work with. She has shaved off a lot of my acting bad habits, and I always leave feeling ready to conquer my auditions!

DB is the best!! I came to Donnabella at a slump in my career. I simply wasn't sure what to do next. She was so patient and positive, I couldn't be more grateful. We spent some time seriously considering my strengths and weaknesses. I learned to highlight my strengths, and developed my weaknesses! Most importantly, I had a sense of direction and fell back in love with the process of acting.
