LaDonna Gatlin CSP, CPAE

LaDonna defies conventional wisdom that says a performer must “pick a lane” and be only one thing…
a speaker
a singer
a concert artist
a songwriter
a humorist
an author
an entertainer…

“Why in the world would I pick only one, when I’m all of those things? 
I’m a woman  (I’m 63…get over it!)
a wife  (married 42 years to the same man!)
a mother  (2 awesome grown kids!))
a grandmother  (7 of ’em…and mine are CUTER than yours!)
a daughter  (Mom and Dad raised me right!)
a sister  (let’s hear it for those Gatlin Boys!)
a friend  (hopefully a good friend!)
…and a fun human being!
Sometimes I’m even a pain!  
But I bring ALL of that with me every time I step onto the stage.” ~ LaDonna Gatlin CSP,CPAE

And speaking of the stage…LaDonna was BORN on one.

The baby sister of country music’s legendary Gatlin Brothers, she began performing at the ripe old age of 5.  In fact, she doesn’t remember when she wasn’t performing!

Okay.........let's cut to the chase. This HALL OF FAMER delivers the goods in every presentation
