“I love my work and credit Warren Wilson College and the hands-on work experience I received there on farm, as the experience that ignited my love of agriculture and paved the way to my current position.” Today, Donna teaches others about sustainable agriculture and issues of hunger and poverty.

“Warren Wilson College profoundly and radically changed my life,” Donna explained.There she studied literature and worked on the Farm Crew, serving as leader of the Swine Crew and often staying on campus during holiday and summer breaks honing her tractor skills and caring for the farm’s livestock. Through the service component of Warren Wilson’s, Donna traveled to Costa Rica where she worked on a small dairy farm.
