Past President

Donna Larson

Space Coast Health Foundation


Donna Larson is the Vice President of Operations for the Space Coast Health Foundation in Rockledge, Florida. In this role, she oversees human resources, insurance program administration, the grant funding process, and facilities management.  While in her role as paralegal for a health system several years ago, Ms. Larson gained experience in insurance program administration and litigation management in areas specific to medical malpractice, premises liability, director and officer, employment and workers compensation claims.  Through these experiences, she learned the value of well thought out policies and procedures.

As a believer in “the big rocks first,” she is committed to the importance of supporting both her team and her family by emphasizing a work/life balance and approaching obstacles as opportunities for solutions.  One of her favorite “solutions” is yoga; others include beach time, belly-busting laughter with her family and silly play time with the pups Ella and Sasha.

Donna holds an undergraduate degree in Health Services Administration from the University of Central Florida and graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Master’s of Science in Employment Law from the Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern University.
