Dona Rodgers is the proud mother of a son, Austin, and twin daughters, Aberle and Morgan. She grew up in Greenwich CT, attended James Madison University where she earned a B.S. in Psychology and met her husband Kurt. They have lived in Fauquier County for the last 26 years. Early in her career, she worked for the George H.W. Bush 1988 Election Campaign and his Inaugural Committee, which parlayed into working for an Alexandria, VA based Political Financial Consulting Firm. She had the honor and very fortunate opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom for several years before developing and managing The Retreat at Eastwood, a special events venue here in Warrenton. Currently, she is Co-Founder and President of Morgan’s Message, Inc., a nonprofit organization created in July 2020 after losing her daughter Morgan to mental illness. It is her mission to increase awareness, reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, and insist that mental health be treated equally to physical health among high school and college student-athletes.
