"As a former Chair of Dogstar Theatre I worked with Donna over a number of years from her appointment as Company Administrator. Over many years of involvement in the public Arts, she is among the most capable, knowledgeable and pragmatic arts professionals I have known. Her work with and input to Dogstar stabilised and grew the Company, its financial control and management was completely overhauled and Donna's attitude and expert knowledge of funders' requirements, her extensive contacts with the Scottish theatre and venue network and her wise counsel, were all indispensable.
"It was a pleasure working with her and she's one of the jewels of Scotland's arts industry."
Andrew Bruce (former Chair of Dogstar Theatre Ltd and patron of public Arts)
