Strengthening connections between the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the federal government is a large component of Donna Wong's job as a policy analyst.

After graduating in 1994, Wong joined Wisconsin's Legislative Fiscal Bureau as an analyst. That experience prepared her for budget and policy analyst posts with the University of Wisconsin System and then the four years with the Congressional Budget Office in Washington, D.C.

She returned to Madison in 2004 to serve in the Wisconsin governor's office as liaison to the Department of Health and Family Services and the Department of Corrections. While at La Follette, she interned with the Community Development Department of the City of Janesville, Wisconsin.
