On a pretty morning in May of 2018, Donna attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for our new facility. Having known Brandi all of Brandi’s life, Donna came to the ceremony simply to support her friend. Little did she know how life-changing that day would be for her. After listening to Brandi and the other therapists speak about their passion for helping children with special needs as well as hearing a few parents speak about what Dynamic Strides Therapy had done for their children, Donna’s heart melted. Shortly thereafter she began volunteering both in the clinic and at special events until the opportunity presented itself to become our office manager in October of 2019.
Donna received a Bachelor of Science degree in Management from Missouri State University in 1982 (then Southwest Missouri State University). She spent the next 37 years in office and retail management.
Family is extremely important to Donna. She and her high school sweetheart, Joe, have been married for 39 years. They have three beautiful children, JJ, Austin and Mariah, a son-in-law, Ronnie, daughter-in-law, Brittany, and daughter-in-law-to-be, Kelli. When she’s not working Donna is either spending time with family and friends or scrapbooking special memories.
