A message from Falecia Williams, President, West Campus
Welcome Donna MacDonald, who joined Valencia on Monday, May 9, 2016, as director, student financial operations. In this role, Donna is responsible for working with colleagues across the College to establish and sustain procedures, as well as train employees and manage financial aid funds to ensure compliance from a systemic perspective. She reports to Christen Christensen, assistant vice president, financial aid and veteran affairs.
Donna brings with her several years of experience working in educational environments, including Lake Technical Center and Lake-Sumter State College, where she recently served as assistant director of financial aid.
She graduated cum laude from Saint Leo University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a minor in computer information systems.
When she’s not working on financial aid, you can expect to find her advocating for animals. In her quest to ensure animal welfare, Donna serves as a volunteer for LEASH, an organization devoted to helping provide medical care and adoption assistance through Lake County Animal Services.
