Donna Macalle-Holly brings more than a decade of experience advocating for the protection and restoration of Lake Hopatcong to her role at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation. Before joining the Foundation, Donna held the position of administrator at the Lake Hopatcong Commission, a quasi-independent state environmental commission. A 2012 recipient of the US EPA Environmental Quality Award, Donna served as a member of NJ DEP Citizens Advisory Committee for the Lake Hopatcong Water Level Management Plan. Donna is motivated by the Foundation’s vision for the lake and its surrounding communities. She appreciates having the opportunity to work with the dedicated employees, board members and volunteers to improve Lake Hopatcong for all who use it. Donna had never heard of Lake Hopatcong until 1983 (the year Bertrand Island Amusement Park closed), when she came boating with her friend’s family and met her future husband, Bruce. It’s hard to believe Donna and Bruce have enjoyed living on Lake Hopatcong for more than 25 years (especially since Donna says she is only 29). They love sharing sunsets together near Halsey Island.
Holly Odgers is a life-long Sussex County resident who brings more than 25 years of experience in environmental advocacy and non-profit management to the Lake Hopatcong Foundation. Prior to joining the Foundation team, Holly served as Communications Director and Vice President of Operations for The Land Conservancy of New Jersey for 18 years. After interim positions at the Musconetcong Watershed Association and Grow It Green Morristown, she has settled in at Lake Hopatcong Foundation assisting in preserving and protecting New Jersey’s largest lake and surrounding community. Holly received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, Photography, and Visual Arts from Ithaca College and lives in nearby Stanhope where she served on the Stanhope Environmental Commission for many years. In her spare time, Holly enjoys hiking and yoga and is gradually getting more comfortable behind the handlebars of a bike.
Caitlin Doran is our “home grown” Development Director, having grown up in Roxbury Township and Mount Arlington Borough. Currently residing in Randolph, New Jersey, she is someone for whom Lake Hopatcong has remained a special place. Prior to joining the LHF team, Caitlin was the Outreach Coordinator for Hackensack Riverkeeper, a clean-water advocacy organization working to protect, preserve, and restore the Hackensack River Watershed. She is a graduate of William Paterson University, a 2017 recipient of the New Jersey Clean Communities Clean Waterways Award, and a former EarthShare New Jersey board member. When she’s not raising funds for the foundation, you can find Caitlin volunteering with other local environmental groups, exploring the great outdoors, making frequent trips to NYC, practicing her trumpet, spending time with family, and drafting better bios.
