With over 23 years of experience in the Sales Industry, energetic, successful, highly motivated and previous owner of Mise en Place Event Design, Donna M. O’Brien brings her New England roots from Northern Virginia to Carlsbad, California, where she plans to do what she does best, sell and execute highly successful events. Donna describes herself as the “Event Planner for the home buyer and seller. Donna began her career as a Sales and Catering Assistant and worked her way up through the ranks with the privilege of working for some of the finest properties of both Marriott International and Interstate Hotels and Resorts. After she gained her momentum she started to branch off on her own and started Mise en Place Event Design, an event planning business focussing on the Boston and Martha’s Vineyard market. After years in the industry Donna branched off and started to help people buy, sell and invest homes in Northern Virginia where she was in the top 20% of her firm on an award winning team.

Donna credits her continued enthusiasm to succeed to her six children who share the same love for helping others. When she has free time, and if she is not in the kitchen testing recipes she loves to be outdoors. She is a runner and a gardener and loves the practice of yoga.

Donna’s attention to detail paired her passion for the industry and pleasing people give her the chance for endless growth and she so excited to continue her success in Southern California.
