Executive Assistant and Account Administrator


Call: 785-320-4203

An office whiz who relishes using her skills to keep all the wheels turning, Donna joined the Manhattan office of The Trust Company in 2014 as a member of Mark Knackendoffel’s team.

“I take care of all the behind-the-scenes administration to help Mark work his magic for our clients and the rest of the company.”

Donna graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University with degrees in office administration and art. She had a long career as a legal secretary, office administrator, and paralegal for an attorney before joining The Trust Company. Her current duties include account administration and corporate-level executive support.

A former fitness instructor, Donna is a dedicated community member with past roles as varied as a city council member in Green, Kan., yacht club board member and church leader. Her current passions are fostering dogs…she has taken in many, many pooches in need of a loving, temporary home…and fundraising for Pottawatomie County Humane Society.

She loves M&Ms, but is a purist who claims we “shouldn’t waste good chocolate on peanuts—that candy coating is all anybody needs!”
