About Donna

Donna is a transplant from Colorado to Oklahoma, moving here 20 years ago. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Early Childhood and Psychology. She had the opportunity to move around the country after graduation and work with children as a Kindergarten teacher, preschool teacher, and a curriculum director. She decided to become a childcare director to help children in a different way by becoming a mentor and leader for teachers. She loves that she gets to know all the children and families in the program.

She has four grown children: Mandilyn, Devon, Sydney, and Trevor. Prior to coming to Acts 2, she took some time off work to travel with her son Trevor for lacrosse. He is now at the University of Indianapolis, playing lacrosse and studying engineering, and he wants to work as a firmware engineer. Once he began college, she decided to go back to work. The opportunity to work with Acts 2 as the Early Learning Program Director came about at just the right time. She is excited to embark on this new mission and adventure.
