In addition to her time spent in the lab, Donna is also a seasoned author, with a catalog of more than 100 articles, five book chapters, and a broad array of research materials. In addition, she is an active speaker, sharing her experience and insight on both coagulation and quality assurance in lectures and workshops. Over the course of her career, she has held many board memberships and chairs—a variety of clinical laboratory management roles, including managing clinical projects for Roche and Siemens—and acts as a coagulation consultant for numerous manufacturers.
Above all, she is the proudest of her professorships. Donna carries an intense passion for education with her wherever she goes, saying, “I have always been an advocate of the laboratory and feel that so much frustration is caused by lack of knowledge.” Regarding her recent students at York Community College, she said, “I believe my greatest accomplishment is the investment that I have made in helping to ensure the future of the laboratory.”
Donna earned her BSc in Biology from Marymount College (Tarrytown, NY) and her Master’s Degree in Health Science and Administration from the State University at Stony Brook (Stony Brook, NY).
