Donna is a qualified teacher and barrister from North Wales.
Other than her time at university, and a short spell teaching in Outer London, Donna has lived in Flintshire all her life. Donna lived in Connah’s Quay until she was three years old when her family moved to Broughton.
Donna attended Keele University where she obtained an honours degree in law before qualifying as a barrister from Manchester Metropolitan University. Donna later qualified as a high school RE teacher and currently works for a major bank.
Donna is the Vice Chair and Secretary of Flintshire Liberal Democrats and the Training Officer for the Welsh Liberal Democrats Campaigns and Candidates Committee. She has stood for the Welsh Liberal Democrats in the 2017 local council election, where she was elected as a Community Councillor, and in the 2018 Welsh Assembly by-election in Alyn and Deeside.
Donna has been a committed campaigner from an early age and has been very active in the Remain movement. Donna was devastated by the results of the EU Referendum as she wholeheartedly believes the people of Wales, and the UK, are significantly better off if we remain as members of the European Union. Donna has dedicated herself to stopping the damage Brexit will do to both the people and to our great country. Donna has passionately campaigned against Brexit, and for a People’s Vote, both with pro-EU groups and with the Liberal Democrats . In the summer of 2018 she arranged a pro-EU event in Wrexham, North Wales which called for the decision to be put back to the people so they can decide, based on what we now know, if the Brexit being offered is what they want.
Whether it be her academic choices or her interest in politics, Donna has always been driven by her desire for justice. Donna believes that the citizens and residents of the UK deserve better and she will passionately fight to right wrongs and create a more just society.
