About Me

Donna Cosmato is a Certified Image Consultant with over twenty years experience in sales and management who writes extensively about fashion, education, business and real estate. She is a retired Christian educator and lay children's minister who enjoys crafting interactive Sunday school lessons for children of all ages to learn more about the Bible and God.

When she is not busy penning her next article, she enjoys crocheting, reading, and music. She and her family live in rural Virginia with their cantankerous Chihuahua, Jilly, and their mellow calico kitty Lucille. She is currently writing a buyer's guide for first time home buyers, which she is co-authoring with her father, who is a licensed associate broker.
