Donna Clawson, CPA
FISW Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
We are happy to welcome Donna Clawson, our new Chief Financial Officer. Donna joined us on October, 1st. She brings to our school a wealth of experience from twenty years of progressive leadership in financial and business-facing roles. She prides herself on driving positive change and building teams with her extensive accounting, controllership, and financial planning and analysis experience in both multinational companies as well as non-for-profits.
Most recently she spent nearly two years as a Director of Finance at Academy for Precision Learning (an all-inclusive independent school for children on the autism spectrum in Seattle) and she has been on FISW board of director’s finance committee for over a year.
Originally from Poland, Donna has lived and worked in the US, France, and the UK and her experiences include organizations like Finastra, Wellcome Trust, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Ernst & Young LLP. She holds a Master of Science in Accountancy/Business from St. John's University in New York. She is also a Certified Public Accountant.
She relocated with her family from London to the Seattle area in 2018 and enjoys exploring beautiful PNW, photography, performing arts, literature, cooking, and baking; ideally spending 'freeish' time by sharing these passions with her two FISW daughters and her husband when he is not busy with his next great venture. Already an active member of the FISW community, Donna is looking forward to this next chapter.
