“I've worked with Donna for the past year on a comprehensive preservation plan for Bartram's Garden, and I can't imagine anyone else who could have tackled the issues of our complex site with such intelligence and integrity. Donna brings a wealth of knowledge about preservation best practices with an understanding of the challenges that accompany organizations with small staff and limited resources. She has helped us focus on the long-term through her superior organizational and facilitation skills, and also has a dry wit that is breath of fresh air. We would keep her around forever if we could.”
