Forest Service Area Manager
Donna comes to the Scenic Area from the Siskiyou Mountains Ranger District on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest in Region 6, where she served as the District Ranger since March 2010. Her previous positions include working for the Bureau of Land Management as an Associate District Manager in Medford, serving as the Special Projects Coordinator on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests in Colorado, and working as a partnership liaison for State and Private Forestry.
She broadened her leadership skills through several temporary promotions as both Deputy Forest Supervisor and Forest Supervisor in both the pacific northwest and in Colorado, including serving as acting Forest Supervisor on the Siuslaw National Forest leading up to the firestorms of 2020. Donna is also qualified as an advanced agency administrator. These experiences give her a vast knowledge of overall forest management programs including natural resource, recreation, timber, and special use management.
Donna has considerable experience in collaborative shared stewardship and public and private partnerships, and her focus as a leader is in fostering relationships and investing in people, both internally and externally, to ensure an inclusive work environment while working to find solutions that meet multiple objectives for an array of interests. She is excited to serve as member of the Columbia River Gorge Commission and join the dedicated team of Forest Service employees.
