Donna came to Sacramento in January 1994 from Phoenix, where she worked as a morning news anchor and reporter for KTSP -TV (now KSAZ). During her time there, she covered stories including the Charles Keating S&L scandal and AzScam, the Arizona political corruption sting. She is also credited with recording candidate Bill Clinton during an outburst, which was picked up by the networks and parodied on "Saturday Night Live".
Before moving to Phoenix, Donna worked as an anchor, reporter and producer at KVII-TV in Amarillo, Texas, where she received an award for her coverage of railroad safety issues. She began her career as a reporter at KBIM-TV in Roswell, New Mexico.
Named as one of the Sacramento region's Best Anchors, Donna believes in service to the community. One of her most rewarding efforts at FOX40 is her series called "A Place Called Home". The segments, which focus on children waiting to be adopted, helped KTXL earn a Presidential Adoption Excellence Award.
Donna loves the outdoors. In her spare time, she likes to hike, power walk and explore new sites with her husband and two children.
