Not only has Donna dedicated her career to KROST with over 40 years at the firm, but she exhibits professionalism and spreads positivity, making her a prominent role model in our organization. She leads by example and fosters a collaborative environment with her involvement at the firm. With her extensive experience working in public accounting, Donna’s professional experience includes auditing, accounting, and payroll. She is responsible for a variety of different services that include compilations, tax returns, business consulting in tip reporting, and bookkeeper training. Not only are Donna’s qualities and traits applied throughout her career, but they are also applied in her personal life. She believes in lifelong learning and promotes personal development in others. She is very involved with mentoring several staff at the firm and continues to foster those relationships with former coworkers.
