Donna began working at FBH in August of 2013 and is now our Bookkeeper.  As our bookkeeper she is responsible for payroll, paying invoices/bills and producing the financials.  She also enters the giving and provides administrative support for the Pastors, Ministry Directors, Volunteer Ministry leaders and committees as needed.  She provides administrative support for our Playschool ministry as well.

Donna was born in the raisin capitol of the world (Selma, CA)  and grew up in the Selma/Caruthers/Laton area before moving to Hanford after getting married.  Her all time favorite food is Mexican (because who doesn’t love tacos).  Before she began working at  FBH, she worked in the accounting/logistics department of a large agribusiness company.  She’s been married to her husband, Joe, for 33 years.  He’s a Golf Course Superintendent at Kings Country Club and she thinks he’s pretty awesome (we do too).  When she isn’t at the church she enjoys gardening, but more than anything, she just wants to spend as much time at the beach as possible.
