Prior to joining Foresite, Donna worked with MSL Investments for 10 years, gaining invaluable real estate experience, as well as obtaining her real estate license. She also worked for both RREEF Property Trust and Transwestern, prior to taking a few years away to raise her family.

An Aggie fan at heart, she loves watching football, cooking and spending time at the river or the golf course with the love of her life, Bill, a retired firefighter and instructor at the fire academy. Donna is the proud mom of Jacob, a 2019 graduate of Texas A&M, who is excelling in the oil and gas pipeline business in Houston, and Dusty, their goofy and loveable Golden Retriever.
What is your favorite hobby?
Being on, in or around the water! You can find me soaking up the sun and scuba diving, swimming, sailing or skiing. Amazing how well you sleep after a day of sun and water!
