In 1972, Donna graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (major in accounting), and began her career as an Accountant I with the City of Jacksonville.  In 1973, she passed the CPA exam and moved with her family to the Washington D.C. area, where she worked for CPA firms in Maryland and Virginia.  Upon returning to Florida in 1975, her CPA certificate was awarded, and she became a member of the FICPA and the AICPA.  After working at a Florida Panhandle CPA firm, she became the Board Accountant for the Okaloosa County Mental Health Board, and thereafter the Comptroller of the Okaloosa County Hospital system.  Upon moving to California in 1979, she worked for yet another local CPA firm, and then joined the Air Force Audit Agency (AFAA) at what is now Los Angeles Air Force Base.  At the AFAA, she performed internal audits (GAO Yellow Book operational audits) of Air Force activities that included Satellite and Launch Programs, their contracting officers, administrators, and logisticians located at the Base, and corresponding contract administrators, quality assurance specialists and government property administrators located at Air Force Plant Representative Offices at Defense Contractor Facilities.  In 1983, Donna moved to the AFAA’s Patrick AFB office and continued to perform internal audits at numerous Air Force bases.  In 1987, she transferred to the Defense Contract Audit Agency, where she provided audit services advising government contracting offices at Defense and NASA contractors for 5 years.  Upon returning to the AFAA in 1992, she was assigned to financial (GAO Yellow Book) audits of the Air Force Financial Statements and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service.  In 2006, she became a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and a member of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA).  She is now retired from the Federal Government and maintains an active license.
