Donna is the host and Senior Producer of Family Album Radio. She holds a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Florida and recently completed her M.S. in Family, Youth and Community Sciences at the University. She has been working for more than 20 years in the field of communications including teaching as an adjunct instructor in the College of Journalism and Communications at UF since 1982. She was also the first working mother to serve as State President of the Florida Public Relations Association in the organization’s 53-year history.
While working in a broad range of industries, Ms. Davis has also juggled the role of wife and mother of three wonderful children. Attempting to balance a successful career with motherhood, she took a step back from her full-time professional work while her children were teenagers and decided to pursue a graduate degree studying the dynamic changes in contemporary family life. She is now happily feathering her soon-to-be empty nest with work that combines her past and her passion on Family Album Radio.
Ms. Davis’s voice is not new to public radio having worked with WUFT-TV/FM as the female voice talent for program promotion, underwriting credits and fund drives for several years. She also voices numerous commercial advertisements and her voice can be heard on the Microsoft® XP interactive training feature as well as on several other Microsoft® tutorials developed by LearnIt Corp. She has also co-hosted a weekly financial call-in radio program, “Dollars and Sense with Jeff and Donna Davis” on WKSY-FM in Gainesville since 1999.
