A bit about Donna:

Tell us something about you and/or your family.

Jay and I were married in 1997. Jay works as a certified Scrum Master and is a talented artist. We have two college-aged children, Kenna and Finley.

We also have two dogs, Malcolm Reynolds and Daisy Mae, and two cats, Cisco Ramon and Metta. (Can you name all of the character references?)

What is your favorite Bible verse?

Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

~ Psalm 25:4-5

Tell us about your educational background.

I have a BA in Literary Studies and most of a Masters in Humanities from UT Dallas. I also have a ridiculous number of credit hours from Collin College because I love taking classes – everything from guitar to statistics – just for fun.

How long have you been on staff at Creekwood UMC?
