Don earned a Master of Science in Ecology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, before moving to Florida to work at an environmental testing laboratory. In 1985, he founded EarthBalance, which has grown into one of the premier natural land restoration firms in the country.

Over the course of his career, Don has chaired Florida’s Environmental Regulation Commission, served as an elected county commissioner, and been president of the Washington, D.C.-based Ecological Restoration Business Association.

Don and his wife, Nancy, started coming to Lake Glenville in the mid-1990s with their three young children, renting various houses on the lake. Eventually, they bought their own house, which has become the holiday meeting place for their children and grandchildren.
