Donne Davis Founder of GaGa Sisterhood

Donne Davis is the founder of the GaGa Sisterhood, a national membership organization for enthusiastic grandmas to connect, grow, learn and share. She founded the organization in 2003 after witnessing the birth of her first granddaughter and going completely “gaga.” Donne hosts a bi-monthly speaker series on Zoom for grandmas from all over the U.S.

Donne is the author of When Being a Grandma Isn’t So Grand: 4 Keys to L.O.V.E. Your Grandchild’s Parents. It’s a practical guide for building mutually respectful relationships with your grandchild’s parents and handling common grandparent challenges.

She writes and speaks about her experiences and observations of grandparenting on her award-winning blog at http://gagasisterhood.com, in her monthly newsletter, The GaGazine and to community organizations.

She’s also an “Instagramma” and loves connecting with other grandmas and sharing her insights on Instagram with her 1,400 followers.
