Louann Donovan (born September 26, 1986) is an American former competitive figure skater. She is the 2004 Nebelhorn Trophy champion and competed in two World Junior Championships, placing as high as sixth.
Donovan won the junior title at the 2002 U.S. Championships. She was assigned to the 2002 World Junior Championships and placed sixth. The following season, Donovan won a silver medal on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series and then debuted on the senior level at the U.S. Championships, placing ninth. She was sent to the 2003 World Junior Championships and finished tenth.
Donovan won gold in her senior international debut at the 2004 Nebelhorn Trophy. Doing a triple flip after the event, she broke the navicular bone of her right foot in half. As doctors initially believed it was a sprain, she attempted to compete at the 2004 Finlandia Trophy and injured her foot further.
