Donna came to the Foundation in 1997 from Roseburg Forest Products, where she worked for 10 years as executive assistant to then-CFO Ron Parker, one of the Foundation’s original board members. As a longtime employee of RFP, Donna was personally acquainted with Kenneth Ford and Hallie Ford, who established the Foundation.
She is a member of the executive management team and serves as liaison to the Board of Directors and Ford Family members. Her primary duties include supporting the Foundation’s president and members of the executive office, managing Board and committee meetings, and helping to maintain staff culture that is positive and representative of the mission and values set by the founders and Board of Directors.
Donna and her husband, Jim, have two sons, Brady and Tyler. She enjoys gardening and spending time on the family farm next to the historic Rochester Covered Bridge in Oakland, 12 miles north of Roseburg.
