Founding The Right Angle Strategic Storytelling LLC, Donofrio-Galley plans to make businesses or nonprofit organizations visible through strategic storytelling, elevating brand identity, and revealing the human identity behind brands, all to attract and engage clientele or supporters.

“For the past 23 years as a nonprofit executive, I have catalyzed a personal passion to leverage connections and cultivate resources using innovative strategies to raise the visibility of an organization” said Donofrio-Galley.

”The creative public relations strategies and tools I have employed to build nonprofit capacity can be applied to business to achieve parallel successes.”

Before entering the nonprofit sector, Donofrio-Galley gained professional experience as a writer, editor, researcher, and instructor.
