She is a retired teacher from the Waterloo Region District School Board who sought election to Council as a way of giving additional service to her community.

Pursuing a life-long learning value, Donna achieved a professional certificate in Leadership for Elected Local Government Officials from the Schulich School of Business, York University in 2013 and has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wilfrid Laurier University.

She served on the United Way Board, HopeSpring Board, the Women's Municipal Campaign School and the Record's Community Editorial Board.

Being a councillor involves city building. I have a vision of Cambridge that requires investment in projects that further our city's prosperity and provides our people with opportunities for recreation, arts and culture and healthy living.
