Donna Crooks

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Donna’s personal vision is to make a difference in the lives of others through her work and in her life. Her passion is developing people to achieve their best, personal performance.

She is the Founder & Chief at Brain Snacks Co. This is a business designed for the league of extraordinary humans, those who want to integrate the demands of a busy personal and professional schedule while accelerating their career growth. Donna runs things with her team of amazing humans, and loves to spend her time interacting with parents who are trying to grow tiny humans and their careers at the same time.

Donna also has an extensive resume in the public sector. She has worked for the Government of Saskatchewan for 12 years. She is currently supporting organizational development work at the new Ministry of Trade and Export Development.

Among her career highlights, she includes her role as Chief Transformation Officer within the Ministry of Social Services in 2017, when she led an amazing team of innovators to collectively disrupt the status quo in government's income assistance programming.

Another of Donna's proud achievements in public service was the launch of Saskatchewan.ca in 2013. This work was the first step toward achieving a vision to give Saskatchewan people what they want and need online, anywhere, anytime and on any device.

Donna has a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Regina and a Master of Arts in Leadership from Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. She lives with her husband and three young sons in Regina, Saskatchewan, where she is also the Vice Chair and Director for the Board of the Lung Association, Saskatchewan.
