She has been a professional genealogist for over 25 years and is a member in good standing with the APG (Association of Professional Genealogists). Donna has written many articles, given many lectures and taught genealogy throughout Southern California. Although she specializes in Native-American ancestry, she is very proficient in American and various international bloodlines.

Donna is an Honored Member of “The Worldwide Who’s Who Registry of Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs” as a business owner, author and professional genealogist. Her first book, Native Americans of San Diego County was published in 2009 and she is currently working on another book which she hopes to have published in 2014. She resides in the mountains of Southern California with her husband, having retired from over 30 years as a medical administrator, and parenting 29 foster children as well as her own daughters.
