Donna began her career as a technical writer, assisting 50 principal investigators in medical peer-reviewed journals. After moving to the DC area, she found that writing for Defense contractors was a more popular field there. Within several years, she transferred to the technical career ladder after obtaining her M.Sci in Information Systems. After a few years, she followed this with an MBA from Georgetown University, also obtaining certifications in project management (PMP), ITIL and Scrum. She eventually migrated to proposal management. In the course of her professional career (and for fun), she has written about every type of documentation available. She's blogged and written an e-book as well, available on Amazon. Much of her work in the last 10 years has been for Government agencies in the Intelligence Community, and she obtained a graduate certificate in Intelligence Analysis in support of that work.
