Dr. Donna M. Beegle provides practical, useable tools for communicating, relating and contributing to improving outcomes, with the eventual goal of ending generational poverty. She brings her unique perspective, having been born into generational migrant labor poverty, dropping out of school at 15, achieving her GED at age 26, studying poverty through the doctorate program and 23 years of research on improving communication and relationships across poverty barriers.
