Work Experience Coordinator and County Services Specialist
Prior to joining the team at Victory, Donna was a dedicated volunteer at her children's schools. When her youngest child was diagnosed with VCFS and autism, Donna began navigating the medical and educational systems. Through these experiences, Donna discovered her passion for providing children access to and opportunities for success--no matter their abilities.
In 2016, Donna joined Victory as a Teaching Assistant, working in both middle and high school classrooms. In 2021, Donna became Victory's first County Services Specialist, helping families navigate the process of gaining county services and benefits for their children. In addition, Donna serves as Victory's Work Experience Coordinator. In this role, she helps students throughout their teenage years with job exploration, skill attainment, and identifying preferences.
Donna live with her best friend (her husband Kevin), her youngest child (Austin), Tillie (fellow Victory staff member and the best dog ever), and two cats. In her free time, Donna loves to travel with her family to warm sunny places, garden, read good books, and eat copious amounts of chocolate and popcorn.
