From a young age she fell in love with playing sports and watching them. When she wasn’t on the softball field, she was getting up before school to watch ESPN or staying up late to watch the Yankees and Cowboys.

In 2019, she won an EMMY for working on MLB Tonight and was also a producer on the Sports Emmy Team that put together the Network’s Emmy Submissions.

In the winter of 2021, Donna became a sideline reporter for ESPN+ covering the UAlbany Women’s Basketball team. She’s also worked for ESPN+ as an on-air game analyst, calling the Ohio Valley Conference Softball Tournament.
