Donna M Carlson

Donna is a woman who knows a lot about transitions.

In her life, she has experienced a lot of loss  and grief is something that Donna has found her way through many times. One of her true gifts is her ability to help someone who is ready to move beyond the tragedy of loss and into a positive future space.

Donna has also reinvented herself in several career paths — each time, moving closer to her true passion of helping humanity through the gift of the horse and healing. In 2016, she graduated from the prestigious and intensive Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM) Certification Program of Touched by a Horse of Elizabeth, Colorado. This program is lead by horse-human healing movement leader, Melisa Pearce, and was a two and half year commitment--the training investment equivalent of a post graduate degree. 

Also in 2019, she received her Certificate in Naturopathic Wellness Coaching from the Institute of Naturopathic Wellness in Florida. 

And, received her Certificate in Integrative Nutrition from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC.

Donna’s compassionate coaching style comes from her deep life experiences. This also makes her a natural to partner with horses or to work one-on-one with her to help you navigate life’s transitions with grace and as much peace as can be found under any situation.

Donna was born and raised in Philadelphia — but was drawn to all things country especially animals and even more horses. She has been a successful equestrian for over 50+ years, riding, training, breeding and showing Morgan horses. Even before she became a certified EGCM coach, Donna knew the healing power of horses.

Donna’s horse experience is extensive. She has ridden and shown in most disciplines including driving, and the last 20 years have been riding Classical Dressage and now Western Dressage. She even worked on the racetrack grooming and exercising horses. Donna feels she was always fortunate to have incredibly knowledgeable and talented trainers who taught her the respect and deeper understanding of the horse.

In addition to her horse experience, Donna has an extensive background in business and higher education and has a love for learning. She holds a BA in Economics and has attended Law School. In college, she was also drawn to psychology and took numerous classes during both her undergraduate and graduate work including extensive coursework in Organizational Dynamics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Also, since a young adult she has been interested in food and cooking, nutrition, and staying healthy. She is a self-taught cook and enjoys cooking meals for her partner and her family. As an equestrian, she has always known the importance of keeping her body in shape and diversifies her exercise program with yoga, riding, walking and going to the gym.
