Donna-Marie, currently working within the television and film industry, thoroughly enjoys performing. 

“For me ventriloquism was an enjoyable hobby that progressed into a part time job that I thoroughly enjoy, which compliments my full time employment, which is working in children’s television, a lot of the time with puppets. I have performed since the age of ten and have had the opportunity to work with many fantastic comedians. For anyone interested in becoming a ventriloquist the important ingredient is to enjoy what you do and create a character or two that can entertain and amuse.”
