Professor Donald is “homegrown” at Liberty. She graduated from Lynchburg Christian Academy, where she met her husband, Mike. She attended Liberty for one year before they married and then focused her energy on homemaking and caring for her son, Tommy.

When the opportunity arose, she returned to Liberty to complete her BA in history with a minor in French and went on to earn the MA from University of North Carolina Greensboro. Her major concentration of study there was European history with a minor concentration in American history. Professor Donald joined the history faculty at Liberty in 2001 and was appointed Assistant Professor of History in 2006.

Currently Professor Donald is completing her dissertation for the Ph.D. in history at George Mason University. Her major field is Early Modern Europe and her minor fields are Early America and Early Modern Culture. Her dissertation research will examine the lives and writings of Protestant noblewomen in Reformation France and their role in creating and preserving Huguenot identity. 

Professor Donald’s major area of interest is Early Modern Europe.
