Meet Donna Li, Resident Manager

Portrait of Donna LiHello, I’m Donna Li and I am excited to be the new Resident Manager for Harvey Street! I was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, California but did my undergrad at UNC Chapel Hill in North Carolina. People often ask me why I would move to Madison if I’m from LA and the surprising answer is that I love being bitterly cold—the kind of cold where I can’t feel my face. Here, at UW, I am a PhD candidate in the Cancer Biology Graduate Program studying how manipulating signaling pathways in immune cells affects their ability to combat cancer cells.

I have been a resident of Eagle Heights for 3 years and have grown to love the community and environment. While I might be new to Harvey Street, I am greatly looking forward to meeting the residents there and fostering community. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, cleaning, binge-watching TV, and flipping furniture. If you ever see me around, please feel free to say hi and let me know if you need any help!  I can’t wait to get to know more of you all!
