Donna joined the AgriFocus team in November 2017.
She originally grew up on a sheep and beef farm in Gisborne but shifted to Southland with a bank in 2014, where she was a Rural Manager prior to having a family.
Prior to that she worked for an accountant before heading overseas for two years to ride horses. She has also recently completed an accounting degree. Donna currently lives on a lifestyle block, which runs sheep, near Winton with her husband and two primary school-aged boys. Netball in the winter and waterskiing during the summer keeps her busy outside of work.
