I attended grad school to become a foreign correspondent. I never imagined how foreign I would get!
Blending astrology, business acumen and my metaphysical training, I help my clients discover — and live — their unique genius. My mission: to live creatively with passion, purpose, abundance and joy; and to empower others to do the same.
In addition to my consulting practice at Donna Philosophica, I teach astrology and other esoteric studies at Kepler College and the University of Texas’ Informal Classes. I’ve also hosted of my own astrology and esoteric-themed Internet radio shows: The Dead Astrologers Society and Donna Philosophica.
A former journalist, I’ve written columns and daily horoscopes at major astrological websites such as Astrology.com and Mysign.com. I’m currently the Managing Editor at AstrologyHub.com.
My seeking mind never rests, always wondering what’s beyond the river bend. My search has taken me places I could never have imagined. I’m an initiate of the Australian branch of the Hermetic Order of the Brotherhood of Light, under the guidance of “white witch” Leonora “Sageylee” Jackson. I’ve studied hands-on healing, dreamwork, channeling and ceremonial leadership with eco-feminist Eileen “ike” West. And I received my hypnosis certification with world-renown hypnotist Mark Cunningham.
I love to splash and play in the astrological community pool. I served as a board member on two of the world’s largest astrology associations — the International Society for Astrological Research and the National Council of Geocosmic Research. I founded the Astrological Society of Austin and was a founding member of the Astrology News Service.
Over the years, I’ve also worked as a translator, fundraiser and non-profit organizer. I received two Master’s degrees from the University of Texas, one in Journalism and another in Latin American Studies.
I live with my beautiful daughter in Austin, Texas.
