Donnalyn is arguably science’s biggest fan. As a facilitator for KI, clients recognize her for being detail-oriented, super-organized and dedicated to meeting their needs. Donnalyn is the lone KI facilitator who started out as a client before being lured to the dark…, um, being encouraged to pursue the study of creativity as a way to evolve her love of championing scientists and advancing scientific progress. She has a B.S. in Biology from the University of Maryland, College Park and a graduate certificate in Creativity and Change Leadership from the State University of New York’s International Center for Studies in Creativity in Buffalo.
Donnalyn has over a decade of experience in research development at The Ohio State University which gives her a comprehensive understanding of scientific funding and the needs of KI’s clients. Clients appreciate this shared history, as well as her endless energy, glowing smile and attentiveness. Her coworkers appreciate her contagious enthusiasm and generous nature. She refuses, however, to share where she found those shoes with the built-in trampolines. (If you find out, let us know.)
