Donna made the Lowcountry her home after relocating from Long Island, New York, where she earned her MBA in Corporate Finance. Taking on the slower pace of life in the south, she took a break from the finance world and spent 10 years with Cross Schools, teaching, project planning and developing systems. But she couldn’t stray too far from her roots and re-entered the accounting and finance field. For the last three years, she worked as Finance and HR Manager for Eastman Marine Construction, where she brought their company into the 21st century implementing operations and finance systems and process changes. Donna spends her free time enjoying the area beaches with her son and chasing her four rescue dogs.
“I am excited to work at Bluffton Self Help because its more than a job. Being in finance, you tend to focus on the numbers and results but here, I have an opportunity to be part of an organization that is serving the greater good and giving back to the community!”
