Donna Edwards is originally from Norfolk, VA, but settled in Carteret County in 1991. She is the mother of two adult children, Justin and Deborah. Donna retired from Legal Services at Marine Corp Air Station Cherry Point, serving four branches of our military during her career.
She has had two years of ballroom instruction and counts dancing as a true hobby. She also enjoys volunteering in the community, shell hunting along our beautiful Crystal Coast beaches and is a yoga enthusiast.
Partner, Kip Johnson, is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin native. He joined the U.S. Navy in 1978, following graduation from the University of Wisconsin. He retired from Civil Service at Quantico, VA in 2012, and moved to Carteret County in 2014 to enjoy the pristine beaches of the Crystal Coast.
Kip's hobbies include completing home projects, strolling on our beautiful beaches, playing with his cocker spaniel, and singing karaoke. Sounds like he's ready for the stage. In addition to his experiences in the Navy, Kip has also been in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, seen Elvis Presley in concert, and is quite the aficionado at trivia. Like Donna, Kip has has some local dance instruction.
