Over 14 years ago, Kelly Donia founded Donia & Associates, a Multi-line Sales and Marketing Firm. What first started as a way to give a young working mother some flexibility in her work day, has grown into a vibrant, innovative, adept, and source seeking firm that brings the local Design Community the latest in interior products. From custom designed furniture, rugs, and flooring to durable and long-lasting products needed for every style, budget, and environment. Creative, yet pragmatic. That’s what Donia provides.
Kelly’s mix of skills is perfectly balanced to accommodate her design clientele. With a degree in English Literature, a back ground in Marketing, and time spent in managing an Art Department, Kelly loves working with creative energy and helping clients create spaces on time and on budget.
Donia & Associates focuses on all areas of Commercial Design. From Hospitality to Corporate, Assisted Living to Universities, Kelly has experience and products for all applications.
Cheerful, fun, lively, and loving life. These are the qualities that Kelly brings to her clients and their projects. “It’s fun. After 14 years I still love hitting the pavement everyday!”

Jane Brinks adds a young and contemporary spark to Donia and Associates’ sales team.
She began her design career at an early age coordinating often unique and colorful fashion ensembles for dogs, horses and friends as well as sourcing interiors for numerous dollhouses and playhouses. As a fashion design major at Syracuse University, she explored textile production and design and experimented with painted surfaces and pattern. A minor in theatre design expanded her creative universe and challenged her to find colors and spaces that told stories.
She has honed her skills in retail sales and gained valuable design industry experience as an assistant at Villanova’s Balongue Designs. With her black Escape tightly packed with samples, Jane is ever ready to hit the road to visit clients new and old. She most enjoys finding the product and design that matches the personality and needs of the user.
An avid runner, Jane always has her sneakers with her and will often find a nearby park or trail to squeeze in a run. She has run nine marathons, most recently qualifying and running the prestigious Boston Marathon. She co-parents a cat with her brother and must be regularly talked out of adopting more homeless dogs, cats and horses.
