The Battles & Victories That Ignited Mrs. Dean’s Unique Vision & Voice
As an African American Woman Business Owner and Visionary; Mrs. Dean is compelled to contribute her unique vision and voice to reach out and help others up their mountain. Mrs. Dean has enjoyed many victories and has conquered many battles. She has experienced great loss over the years. A loss of her previous husband, who died tragically from a pulmonary embolism 14 years ago.

In 2019, Donna nursed her current husband through the battle of his life – colon-rectal cancer. It was a very difficult time, as her husband nearly lost his life after a failed surgery, and post-surgery complications, to include a life-threatening infection. Mrs. Dean attributes her unwavering faith in God, her village, her tribe – the support and love of her family, church family and friends as the rock she stood on to conquer her battles.

Knowing first-hand how the power of a tribe can help someone overcome battles has ignited Mrs. Dean’s vision of her Therapeutic Coaching Model.


In 2020, Donna was laid off, due to the pandemic, alongside millions of Americans. The celebration of her many victories and overcoming her many battles led Mrs. Dean to this moment. Instead of returning to Corporate America after a very successful 25+ year career path, she chose to reach back and help others up the mountain. She chose to help people and companies rise to thrive above their challenges.
