After earning her BS in Business Administration degree and paralegal certificate, Donna D. worked for over 17 years as a technical writer in the Contracts Department of a national company specializing in home health care. Completing responses to “Requests for Proposals/Invitations to Bid” required extensive research, attention to detail and coordination of responses from multiple levels within the organization, including staff, management, and field personnel.

Donna D. completed several assignments dealing with health issues for an East Coast women’s magazine. The Editor provided the general topic and e-troductions to several physician advertisers; the rest was a matter of Donna developing the appropriate questions, conducting the interviews, and turning the information into an article suited to the readership. Her previous experience in the home health industry led to a successful relationship.


Drawing from her love of growing things, Donna D. went a step further and in 2006 became a Master Gardener through her local state Extension office. After completing the course taught by professors from the State agriculture university, each year she exceeds the minimum continuing education hours necessary to maintain her active status. Part of the volunteer service she performs for the organization includes drafting responses to grant offers and turning the after-program data into a comprehensive report to the grantor.
