DONNA S. VIEIRA
Travel has always been a huge part of who I am. From the moment I took my first flight from Winnipeg, Manitoba, to Victoria, B.C., at the age of 10, I was hooked. My passion for travel was a constant throughout my 25-year airline career as well as in my personal life and it remains so to this day.
Years of experience in advertising, promotions and communications in the airline and travel industry prepared me well for my career as editor and travel writer for DREAMSCAPES TRAVEL & LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE, a Canadian magazine distributed through the Globe & Mail to 100,000 high-income households across Canada. I also edited the annual TRAVEL GUIDE TO FLORIDA, sold in retail newsstands and bookstores throughout Canada and the USA as well as online.
My travels have taken me through Canada and the USA and to Western and Eastern European countries, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Central and South America, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji, Southeast Asia, Kenya, Turkey, Egypt and Israel. And there are still so many more places to visit!
Over the years, discussion, curiosity, respect and sensitivity have helped me embrace a genuine empathy toward the people I meet. I am ever grateful for all the stories, dreams, wisdom and experiences with which they’ve entrusted me, and my ultimate goal is to share these treasured gifts with the utmost respect.
My husband (a chef) and I also own and operate Globetrotters B&B/Gallery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. We love welcoming guests from around the world to our home. So when we are not off discovering the world, our B&B gives us the opportunity to pay forward all the kindness and hospitality we’ve experienced on our travels.
I am also a certified Empowerment Coach for Women and Astrologer and I love to apply both skills in my life coaching sessions. More information on this is found under Services. If, by any chance, you are interested in making a difference in the world and pursuing a career as an Empowerment Coach for Women through the S.W.A.T. Institute, learn more here.
