Doug Walker

Communications Director

Doug Walker, a Louisiana native, joined Disabled Veterans National Foundation in 2011 as the program coordinator. When the need arose for DVNF to grow its communications presence, he quickly assumed the role of Communications Manager, becoming the Communications Director upon CEO Joseph VanFonda’s arrival to DVNF.

Having experience in multiple aspects of nonprofits, as well as having interned in the press shop of a U.S. Senator, he has successfully built DVNF’s communications presence.

Doug is tasked with overseeing all external communications and marketing and works alongside the development director to build partnerships with other entities. He also manages the website content and is in charge of developing forward-thinking communications strategies. Doug graduated from Louisiana State University in 2010 with a degree in History, with extensive coursework in English and Visual Communications.
