Wilkes-Barre, PA USA

Professional Experience

Me, a notebook and a speculum. It's all about research. And if enduring colon hydrotherapy herself will help better formulate the story-- then get out the lube. Donna is a been-there-done-that type of reporter. She braved many experiences for the sake of print journalism: skydiving, indoor rock climbing, couples yoga and the aforementioned colon hydrotherapy. For the past several years, she has been enjoying life as a contributing writer for Wilkes-Barre's highly popular alternative weekly, The Weekender. Aside from the entertainment and culture scene, she writes for Inc. 500 E-commerce company Solid Cactus' bi-monthly eBiz Insider, the regional arts & culture magazine, The Independent and has in the past contributed to Wilkes-Barre's daily, The Times Leader, covering municipal and school board meetings and contributing lifestyle and people pieces too. Donna works full-time in the e-commerce industry and is seeking freelance work.
