Donita Hansen grew up in Canby, Oregon. She received her Legal Secretary Associates Degree at Mt. Hood Community College and started working at Miller, Nash Law Firm in downtown Portland. After getting married to her high school sweetheart, she changed jobs and went to work in NIKE’s Legal Department. She switched to NIKE’s Footwear Marketing Department for a few years and eventually was able to do what she considers “best job ever” - staying home with her two daughters.
Donita joined the Oregon Golf Association in September 2003, and in that time she has held many titles to go along with the many hats she wears in her job. She is the “voice of the OGA” when you call into the office and considered the glue that holds all the moving pieces in the office together by her co-workers.
Donita and her husband, Todd have two daughters, Kirsti (24) and Kaylee (21). She enjoys hanging out poolside with family and friends and taking trips to the Coast and Black Butte each year.
