Donna went to Groveton High School, from which she matriculated in 1975, and then enrolled at George Washington University, however, she soon dropped out of studies, and instead started pursuing a career in modeling. In 1976, Donna was chosen as Miss Virginia USA, and the following year became the Miss Washington D.C. World.

Donna’s acting debut happened in 1980 in the sitcom “Bosom Buddies” (1980-1981), starring Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari, next to Donna. She then appeared in a couple of episodes of the TV series “The Love Boat” (1981) as Dr. Jill McGraw, and portrayed Daisy in the made-for-television crime drama “Margin for Murder” the same year.

Apart from acting alongside her husband, Donna had other successful roles, such as Sarah Wilder in the western “No Man’s Land” (1984), then as Allison Harris in the TV series “Berrenger’s” (1985), and as Tiffany in the action comedy “Cannonball Fever” (1989).

Donna decided to retire in the late ‘90s to focus more on her family, but before retirement, she made several more appearances, such as in the comedy film “Wayne’s World” (1992), as Dreamwoman, and in the biopic about former president Richard Nixon, “Nixon” in 1995, as Maureen Dean.
