Donna Schneider

Administrative Assistant

Even though I did not know what “Presbyterian” meant before starting this job, I love working at First Pres because of the wonderful people I have met.  Everyone has made me feel so very welcome and appreciated.  I am very grateful for all of the support I’ve received since Day 1.

I grew up in La Crosse and attended Central High School. After High School, I received my Associates Degree in the Administrative Assistant program from Western Wisconsin Tech. For 30 years, I have worked a variety of Administrative positions for various organizations and businesses such as Mayo Health System, Catholic Charities and Fowler and Hammer, Inc. just to name a few.

I have two adorable cats at home, Ziva and Tony!  In my free time, I enjoy snuggling with my cats, gardening, camping, anything outdoors…and also visiting with friends over a cup of coffee or 2 or 3!  Some of my favorite memories are spending time up at my family’s cabin in Hayward, Wisconsin. Being in the north woods brings me much needed peace and serenity.

As I always half-joked about wanting to go to Greece. And I hope that, someday, I will be able to travel there!
