Donna Barrington-Smith

Training Support & Administration Manager

Donna joined ESRA in 2017 with a wealth of experience from the travel industry. From a multi-national retail travel agent to specialist tour operators, SEO copywriting to brochure product managing, website production to travel and foreign exchange system development, Donna’s organisational skills are diverse, and merge well with the logistical challenges of Mental Health training.

Her link to mental health started in 2008 when Donna became an active voluntary member of a support fund at King’s College Hospital (London) later becoming Chairperson. Amongst her roles, Donna is a trained mentor to a specific group of transplant patients and is currently serving as a patient representative on a new research project.

Most weekends you’ll find Donna at athletics tracks or in a cross country field as she is a National Athletics Technical Official specialising in timekeeping, or she’ll be out with her family walking her two Tibetan Terriers.
