( RESUME - SPOTLIGHT LINK: www.spotlight.com/0690-8977-2992 )
Originally hailing from Falkirk in Scotland, Donna initially moved to London straight out of high school to attend The London School of Musical Theatre. However, following successful auditions the opportunity to work beckoned and
Donna decided to forfeit her place and take on the professional world.
Her credits cover repertory theatre, National tours, film, TV, voiceover, cabaret, corporate role play, live commercials and more in both Europe and the U.S having been granted a performance visa and sponsorship with a talent manager across the pond.
In 2008, with the intention of simply fulfilling her other passions of fitness, Latin music, and education by teaching a few classes on the side,
Donna took up the role of Zumba® Education specialist and has since been travelling the globe representing the Zumba® Fitness brand running Instructor Trainings and presenting at various events including Conventions, Fitness Concerts, Dance Expos, STV Live & Online, TV3 Ireland, This Morning, The Lorraine Show, National Radio, Health & Fitness Magazines & Zumba® Fitness DVDs.
Her first love, the very charming Mr. Performance has been calling her lately and she is very happy to be returning to the theatrical world with the release of 3 albums, while still holding down her other roles in presenting, educating & holistic wellness, so her life is full of everything she loves, no passion left un-pursued!
