Donna is a Certified Public Accountant licensed in Vermont. Her career started in public accounting where she was first exposed to the complexity and unique issues nonprofit organizations face. For the past twenty years, her career focus has been in the private sector working for nonprofit organizations while also running a small tax preparation business. Accounting in these areas is quite dynamic and continuing regulatory changes coming from grantors, the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the IRS keep Donna in a state of anxious anticipation. Donna lives in Plainfield, VT on 66 acres of land that she cares for with her husband, Jeff. She is very enthused to work for NOFA-VT with its emphasis on organic farming practices while promoting human and environmental justice. Donna has many happy places but her favorites are located within the woods surrounding her home and in various locations along the mid coast of Maine. When not working or exploring the woods Donna enjoys hiking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and spending time with family including her two horses, two rescue dogs, three hens, and a cat named Jasmine.
