Donna’s previous experience has been as Manager of the Dandaragan Community Resource Centre working with the local community to enhance tourism opportunities, training, social & business development events and assistance with latest IT technologies. One of her initiatives was to host quarterly Small Business Sundowners which brought in special guest speakers to assist in upskilling and providing knowledge to build and grow businesses in the area.
Prior to this Donna co-owned and operated the Gingin Space Observatory for 10 years. In this time it has become a world-class Observatory which provides a unique Australian stargazing experience. Donna also organised many special events with visiting astronomers from all over the world, and worked closely with colleagues in the West Australian science and astronomy community. This included Perth Observatory, Scitech, University of WA, Curtin University and Astronomy WA.
