Donna has a degree in economics from the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign and a Master of Science in Health Systems Management degree from Rush University. She has over 15 years of experience working within the healthcare benefits industry with a focus on strategy, design, implementation and accounts management. Donna started at Beacon in 2016 as the data coordinator for the Aging in Place (AIP) program and expanded her role to encompass the entirety of the Beacon Community Impact programs. In all her prior roles, she has leveraged her focus on data analytics to facilitate data driven decisions, a skill she brings to her current role as project specialist with a focus on data analytics and reporting. She develops, administers and manages the tools and processes BCI uses when selecting and supporting external partners.
Weather permitting, Donna spends as much time as possible outside designing and creating gardens (focusing on sustainability through native planting and permaculture) for her family and friends. When not gardening, Donna loves to read, practice yoga, and spend time with family.
