Davonna is passionate about promoting “all that is good.”
Leveraging her extensive experience in marketing and communications, PR, and management, she has created Davonna Inc. The “Inc” stands for inclusive, as she believes inclusiveness is key to changing our world for the better.
Davonna is from northeastern Kentucky and earned her BA in Communications from Georgetown College. She went on to complete a Master’s in Healthcare Administration from the University of Kentucky’s College of Public Health while working in patient advocacy and PR at Baptist Health Lexington. She then spent 5 years as the Director of Marketing for Lexington Diagnostic Center.
With an innate love for senior citizens, she was a natural fit in her next job as Community Relations Director for a senior care assisted living community. Recognizing her talents, she was quickly promoted to Executive Director, and tasked with opening a new community in Georgetown, just as the Covid Pandemic hit. Thriving despite this daunting challenge, she oversaw the construction, hiring and culture development for a 136-unit community.
In addition to her community and non-profit involvement, she serves on the Board of Directors for Women Leading Kentucky. She is a proud graduate of Leadership Lexington, has been on the board of Lexington Forum, and served as VP of Women In Business for the Scott County Chamber.
Davonna enjoys public speaking, singing, gardening, yoga, the arts, and supporting her local community through volunteering, fundraising and event planning. She loves her life in Central Kentucky, where she lives with her husband David, and their two cats, Linx and Tipsy. When not at home, you will find her ”in the room where it happens,” and at the table for important conversations about women empowerment and equal rights for all. Her business, Davonna Inc., provides her with ample opportunities to use her creativity, strategic planning skills, and marketing know-how to promote good in her strong and ever expanding network of professionals throughout Kentucky.
