She moved to Boca Raton in 1994 when her husband joined a Urology practice in the area. Giving back to the community has always been an important part of her life. She has volunteered for the Palm Beach County School District, was a board member and Treasurer for the Children’s Place at Home Safe, and has volunteered at Saint Andrew’s School and St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church. She has been a member of the George Snow Scholarship Committee for the past four years and is proud of the relationship that the Committee and Best Foot Forward share to help students succeed. She is an active member of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Leadership Class of 2016. Donna was initially reluctant to participate in the Battle since it was completely out of her comfort zone. She thought about all of the kids in the Best Foot Forward program who are always outside of their comfort zone and decided she would dedicate her dance to them. Donna loves to exercise, watch sports and cook in her free time. She enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, her friends and all the terrific people that are involved with Best Foot Forward.
