Donna L. West
Donna L. West has loved theater as long as she can remember from seeing Man of La Mancha with Howard Keel at the Shady Grove Music Fair, to HAIR at the Morris Mechanic in Baltimore to numerous plays, musicals and a 5 year season ticket holder for the New York City Ballet in New York City. Originally from Washington, DC, Donna and her husband, Roger moved full time to Harbeson, DE in May 2013, after they both retired from the federal government. Donna retired from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Plant Protection and Quarantine, after a wonderful 33 + year career that took her all over the world evaluating new fruits and vegetables for entry into the US while ensuring they met US entry requirements by preventing the entry of foreign plant pests. Donna received her B.S. in Biology from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the public honors liberal arts college that sits on the St. Mary’s River. It was the perfect setting to study water pollution ecology and learn how to sail. Donna loves meeting new people and is known as the Network Queen by her friends. She is excited to bring these skills and others to work for the benefit of Clear Space Theater and our local community.
