Donna has extensive background in family dynamics and youth development and is the perfect fit for any family looking for an “advocate” to help them navigate the process of transitioning their student from middle school into high school, graduating from high school, preparing for college, and then guiding them as they plan for their future careers!
Donna is from a family of eight children – six boys and two girls – and her background in child development is instrumental in working with families and their children in all aspects of their lives. She is married to George Crace, well-known coach, teacher, administrator, and motivational speaker throughout the Northwest. They have been married over 30 years and have four children and six grandchildren. She has counseled and helped many clients graduate and go on to successful and rewarding lives!
Donna attended Portland State University and Oregon State University after graduating from Tigard High School. She has extensive experience in marketing, advertising, promotions, entertainment venues, and making all things she touches fun and lively! She has a huge heart for the “special needs kids” and the many kids who “fall through the cracks” who need one-on-one guidance and support. Donna loves working directly with both parents and their students as they navigate the emotional and often stressful journey preparing for college and beyond. She truly brings “the mother’s touch” to all Crace College & Career Seminars!
