Donna is an award-winning journalist who started her television news career in 1995 while earning her Bachelor’s in History at Florida State University. Her first job out of college was as anchor/reporter in Rapid City, South Dakota. She then jumped to Corpus Christi and Austin, Texas also as anchor/reporter before making her way back home to her hometown. Once back in Miami, she worked as a reporter at Univision, as a Miami-based correspondent for ABC News and as a reporter/anchor at the NBC6.
After 20 years in the business, Donna is still very passionate about her work and she considers herself lucky to be doing what she loves. She enjoys every step, from researching stories and meeting people, to writing and telling their story.
In her free time, Donna enjoys the outdoors, staying active, reading, laughing and spending time with family, friends and the love of her life: her dog Sandy, a rescue from the Miami-Dade Animal Shelter.
As a childhood cancer survivor, Donna also tries to help others in the fight for their lives, working with several hospitals and charitable organizations. Doctors diagnosed Donna at age seven with Lymphocytic Lymphoma, and told her parents that she would likely not make it past age 10. Now as a survivor –well beyond 10 years young — Donna makes every effort to reach out to parents of children diagnosed with cancer and living through the unimaginable to let them know that there is hope.
