Donielle Lavintman, co-founder of Teeny Tiny Treatments, primarily works behind the scenes managing business operations. While she dabbles in all areas of the company, Donielle has always had a knack for detail. Donielle, nicknamed Doni, holds a master’s degree from NYU in Art Therapy and a dual bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University in Studio Art and Anthropology. She has an affinity for travel and spent a significant amount of her (pre-married) life traveling the world. Spending several months in India in 2007 and becoming a yoga instructor led her into the field of education. Doni has been a yoga teacher, teaching as a full-time early childhood yoga instructor for nearly a decade. Doni has two children and currently lives in New York.
Doni and Donna have a long history together, having been in each other’s lives for nearly twenty years—their unique gifts compliment their respective contributions to the company, and their history has translated into a successful business relationship. Donna was the first of Doni’s friends to have children, and therefore was the first person Doni turned to for advice when she had children, herself. After countless hours of parenting advice over the years, there were certain things about parenting that Donna and Doni felt should be less complicated. Making life easier for parents just seemed like the right thing to do, and who better to do it with than a fellow mommy and longtime friend? Starting and building Teeny Tiny Treatments with Donna has been and continues to feed Doni’s love for supporting parents on their journey of parenthood.
