Stellar Staff – Donna

Donna supports kids in Thorne Bay and Naukati.

Donna came to Alaska in 1989 from Oregon, and joined the Community Connections team in 2012.

She started as a Support Specialist and now works as a Service Coordinator for Thorne Bay and Naukati on Prince of Wales Island.

Donna enjoys working with families and kids. One of the challenges is how rural Prince of Wales is; there isn’t always great access to opportunities. But all in all, “It’s very rewarding,” she says.

Leigh White, one of our Child and Family Therapists in Craig, works closely with Donna and says that she’s a valuable member of the team.

“She’s empathetic, compassionate, and has a heart bigger than most,” says Leigh.

In her free time, Donna enjoys painting and watching anything sci-fi.

Thanks Donna, for all that you do.

We feature staff as part of our monthly Stellar Staff Spotlight. The spotlight rotates between programs (Children’s Mental Health, Early Learning, and Senior & Disability Services), and between Ketchikan and Prince of Wales, with a focus on recognizing direct service staff.
