Before devoting her attention to Beyond Compliance LLC, Donna spent 10 years working for a commercial waste management company in various customer service and compliance support roles, 5 years working in different manufacturing settings doing regulatory and EHS compliance work, and 15 years working in the compliance and assurance group for a leading international consultancy. In these roles, she worked collaboratively with all levels of an organization to implement management systems, develop written programs and plans, identify gaps in sustainability and compliance programs, and negotiate settlements with regulatory agencies.

Donna is a Certified Sustainability Practitioner, a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager, and a Certified Professional Environmental Auditor with a Master’s Degree in Environmental Science from Drexel University. Additionally, she has completed the 10-hour OSHA Outreach programs for both construction and general industry.

In addition to being a consultant, Donna is an adjunct professor in the College of Engineering at Villanova University, is an avid hockey player, and loves to ride motorcycles. Donna volunteers with the Township of West Pikeland where she provides support for two committees – the Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) and the Emergency Operations Committee (EOC). On the EAC, our mission is to conserve and maintain West Pikeland Township natural resources for the benefit of all the people. On the EOC we work with FEMA and PEMA to prepare for nuclear emergencies that may occur at the nearby power plant.
