She has immense optimism and enthusiasm, truly showing the joy that should be part of life. Donna is very experienced in her craft and shows a grounded and integrated approach to spirituality.

Fr Morgan Batt

“I highly recommend Donna Power.  She relates well with young people and has lots to offer them. As well as being gifted musically Donna is a life-giver and hope-giver to young people especially those who are struggling with very difficult situations. Donna, through her personality, gifts, and faith radiates hope and wellbeing. I highly recommend her and her programs.”

Father Wally Dethlefs AM

“The name, ‘Experience Wellbeing’, conveys Donna’s holistic approach to education and the power of the experiential nature of how she works. She is not about giving concepts only but about drawing young people and those on staffs into an ever-deepening experience of life.”

Penny Carroll (Lecturer and Counsellor)

“Donna is an amazingly gifted person, whose commitment to modelling authentic Christian leadership enables her to forge strong and sustainable connections with young men and women.  The passion, energy and creativity which Donna has invested into working with the youth in both school and parish life has been life changing for them and is testament to her integrity and dedication to supporting young people in their spiritual journey.”
