Growing up in coastal East Sussex, Donna initially worked in residential settings with people with learning difficulties. She then retrained to become a community-based Holistic Therapist – focusing her practice upon the needs of older people, people with learning disabilities and people with physical disabilities.

As a mature student, Donna studied for an Arts and Humanities degree at Birkbeck College, and having graduated, she joined the Village Agent team at Action in rural Sussex in 2017.

She is now enjoying her role, encouraging and supporting a wide variety of projects in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
