This month is Donna Salinger’s anniversary at Relyco. She started in April 2000, which makes her our current longest-running employee! Donna is our Accounting Administrator. She focuses primarily on billing. Like many people in accounting, Donna is detail-oriented, efficient, direct and straight-forward. She happens to have a family connection to Relyco – she is Mike Steinberg’s sister-in-law.
Donna is the keeper of the candy in our office. Everyone is welcome to visit one of her filing cabinets to raid the office M&M stash. Donna never reveals names, but she says that some people visit daily and others rarely seek out the sweets.
Outside of work, she’s passionate about her quilting hobby. She designs and creates beautiful handmade quilts! She has a great New England accent and a really dry sense of humor. She was a pleasure to interview.
