About the Author

Dr. Donna Vincent Roa started her journalism and communication career writing obituary notices for the Beaumont Enterprise newspaper's Lake Charles, Louisiana bureau. She wrote this book following the death of her mother in January 2011 to help others through the funeral planning process.

Currently, she is Managing Partner & Chief Strategist for Vincent Roa Group LLC, a Maryland-based firm specializing in communication to improve the earth and its people. An IABC-accredited business communicator, Donna is a business process expert who builds best-in-class communication portfolios for government agencies, corporate clients and international organizations. Previously, she was Public Affairs Director and Director of Science Communication at the Environmental Protection Agency.

A former United Nations senior communication officer and water sector communication consultant for the World Bank and UNICEF, she was the keynote speaker at the first class of graduating social marketers in Cajamarca, Peru. She was also one of ten US Treasury Department-designated researchers to conduct research to support the first redesign of the $100 bill.

She is past president of the largest US chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators, has a Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Southern Mississippi, was a Rotary Scholar, and is a former Environment Commissioner for the City of Rockville.

Just a few years ago, she could be found doing stand-up in Hollywood, writing screenplays, and promoting her short film that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. She is currently working on two novels which are based on screenplays she wrote while in Hollywood -- "One Child" and "Possession Point."

She lives in Rockville, MD, with her husband, Victor, her children, Alex and Gretchen, and a rescue Chihuahua Shih Tzu, named Max.
