Names and Aliases
None – Donna is a tough one!
What do you do at FUN?
Director of Personnel and Operations – I am responsible for the hiring and placement of our FUN employees at your event. I hire and create training programs for our artists, performers and crew staff. I am the “behind the scenes” person who knows what your event needs and matches the right employee skills and personality to your event.
Something you want to share about yourself: I am originally from Quincy and now reside in Randolph with my husband, Ron, who I met working at FUN. We have two children, Lexi and Nick, who also work at FUN, it’s a family affair! Ron and I will be first time grandparents in August when our daughter, Lexi, has her first baby.
I love spending free time in my flower garden. This year, with fingers crossed, I am putting in a vegetable garden to try tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, summer squash and pumpkins. I love Caribbean cruises with my husband and any island destination with white sand and sparkling blue water.
Your favorite FUN program
Dry Erase Boards – I love the way they look, the graphics are amazing and they are useful- they last so long. My other favorite is Spin Art Frisbees – FUN has a different technique to doing spin art, it allows people to create so many different designs, it is relaxing, almost therapeutic, and people have so much fun, from design to the finished product.
