Donna spent the first twelve years of her professional life climbing the corporate ladder in the Property & Casualty Insurance industry, becoming the first female Vice President of a large Fortune 100 Insurance Brokerage firm.
Upon meeting her dentist husband, Nelson Krum, she left the insurance business and began using her managerial skills in the dental profession. It was “love at first sight” and she continues to be passionate about the dental profession.
The year after arriving on Saipan in 2013, she started her own firm, Friends First Marketing Inc.
With Friends First, Krum serves the dental community on Saipan with marketing skills that bring dental practices new patients, the life blood of every business, new or old. She is also co-owner of Paradise Dental Spa, which opened in 2015.
She is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and served on The Chamber Board for two terms. She has also served as Co-Chair of several Chamber committees.
Donna is also President of the CNMI Soroptimist Organization and co-leader of The Grief Support Group on Saipan.
Krum is a Suma Cum Laude graduate of Glendale College with an Associate’s Degree in business administration. She also has completed the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter designation (CPCU), the most prestigious degree in the Property & Casualty insurance profession.
Donna is a life-long learner, and is passionate about continuing to learn something new every day! Her professional motto is to “Show up and Play Nice”. You just don’t want to miss anything along the journey!
In addition to dentistry, her passion is Health & Wellness and everything Anti-Aging. And also her boonie dogs, Spencer & Miss Scarlett, the Paradise Dental Spa puppies!
