She is the typical mother of two; born and raised as a product of a middle-class urban community. She was educated through the Prince George’s County Maryland public-school system and earned a Bachelor’s degree at Bowie State University.

Donna groomed herself in the dual roles of a career-driven professional, and a dedicated homemaker. After becoming a divorcee following a 22-year marriage, she suddenly also found herself thrown into the unexpected role of a caregiver to one of her young adult sons when falling victim to gun violence.

Donna has since become a Certified Divorce Coach and the self-published author of CINCINNATI DOE: A Mother’s 30-Day Journey in ICU, detailing her experience of tragedy turned to triumph.
