About Donnica: When I first moved to Washington D.C., I started volunteering at a political national membership association – that’s where I caught the political bug. I eventually networked my way onto Capitol Hill and spent four years there before heading to HEINEKEN USA to work on legislative strategy and promote brand reputation. In my free time, I “Apple TV and chill,” workout, and travel. I love living and working in Washington, D.C. – there is always something happening (especially in the summer!), plenty of routes for biking and running, and so many smart, interesting people dedicated to making the world a better place.
