Peg Donahue

Feng Shui Connections

Margaret M. (Peg) Donahue is a highly skilled business and personal consultant, teacher, and coach specializing in feng shui, clearing energies and blockages, and refocusing clients to live authentic, prosperous lives using easy and practical tools. Through many types of training, and her numerous years in business leadership, she mastered the art of energy and its impact on personal and business success.

Peg holds an MBA from Boston University and a BA from Georgetown University. She is also a graduate of three professional feng shui programs, the Building Biology Institute, Space and Personal Clearing trainings, plus several coaching and intuitive development programs. She also taught and certified feng shui practitioners for seven years at her own school, The New England Center for Feng Shui and Intuitive Arts, in addition to an eight-year collaboration with Karen Kallie, of Living Energy Works, on stress-reduction programs.

Throughout her life and career Peg has demonstrated a unique ability to help individuals and teams achieve success. This includes a highly successful twenty-one-year career (including seven years as a vice president and general manager) with one of the leading database marketing firms in the country. Working with large nonprofit organizations and Fortune 500 clients across a variety of industries, Peg was often tasked with turning the most challenging teams and circumstances around. She used the same tools then as she does today.

No stranger to personal transformation, Peg has been following her passion and teaching others to do the same. After leaving her corporate career in 2000, she immersed herself in metaphysical studies and founded Feng Shui Connections in 2001.

Peg teamed with Madeline Gerwick in 2002 to teach prosperity training to individuals and business professionals. Their 8 Keys to the Ultimately Prosperous Business trains people to understand how energy impacts outcomes. In 2005 Peg co-authored Dorm Room Feng Shui and in 2016 was a contributing author to the bestseller Success Manifesto, along with Madeline Gerwick, Brian Tracy, and others. Money Is an Energy Game (2019), is their latest collaboration.

In addition, Peg was an organizational leadership / human relations adjunct instructor for Southern NH University (SNHU) for four years. Using the same techniques to teach and motivate her students, in May 2015 Peg received SNHU’s Excellence in Teaching Award as an Outstanding Online Adjunct Faculty Member.
