Vision Chef. I am Donna Marie. I was born and raised in Jamaica (the Caribbean–not the neighborhood in Queens, New York) and have lived in the United States for over 30 years. I have a career I love, nurtured friendships and partnerships with extraordinary men and women, and participated in diverse mind-expanding activities. My passions are aroused by many things (nature, sports, movies, live performances and art to name a few). Most of all, I view life–and being human–as an exciting adventure, an exploration. This exploration led me to workshops, seminars, books, videos, retreats, courses, and experiences around the globe–all part of the effort to express the real me and live my best life. Through this process of self-discovery I began to realize the key to living life to the fullest is as simple as staying aware, awake and attuned to the magic and miracle of each moment. As this is an inside job, I needed to find ways to nurture this discovery and be inspired each day so I could bring this spirit and attitude to my daily life. This desire inspired the creation of the food for the soul™, an inspirtainment website, where daily #SoulFood is shared to inspire myself and our online community of members. In 2013, I co-authored and published my first book, The Freedom Zone: Your Gateway to Love, Liberty and Happiness, where readers are introduced to an approach to healing the past, coming to terms with loss and disappointment, loving the present, and creating a breathtaking future.
