ALLIANCE SUMMER INTERNS
After serving on our board for 6 years, Donna retired from her work as a high-tech marketer and became Executive Director of Ti-Alliance in January 2018. She says that her work with Ti-Alliance takes advantage of many of the skills she has honed in high-tech. Read more…..
“Both jobs involve creating a vision of the future, developing a roadmap to that vision, bringing together the team of people that can bring it to life, and helping them stay on track. It’s remarkably similar work but much more rewarding to be putting those skills to work here in my own community!”
For 34 years Donna owned Unconventional Promotions, a marketing and event company supporting some of the world’s most prominent high-tech companies including Amazon, Apple, Hewlett Packard, and many others.
But as a 3rd generation summer resident of Hague she has always considered this her home and community. And though she lived in San Francisco and traveled the world for more than 30 years, self-employment and the Internet gave her the flexibility to spend more and more time at her home in Hague before becoming a permanent resident in 2010.
When she’s not working on Ti-Alliance initiatives, she’s usually cooking for her friends or in the garden. In the summertime, you can often find her at the Northern Lake George Yacht Club in Hague where she’s been a lifelong sailor and coach, serving for many years on the Junior Program Steering Committee and board of directors. She has been the club’s Principal Race Officer since 2007. Donna is active in many aspects of the Hague Community and helped to start and manage the successful Made in Hague artist collective that operates seasonally in Hague.
