Donna L. Barr, Account Executive, Licensed Producer
A Cape Cod Native, Donna grew up in Harwich but moved "Off Cape" for a short time. She and her husband decided that Harwich was in their blood, so they moved back to buy a home here and raise their kids in the Town that they love.

Donna has worked in the insurance industry nearly 20 years, and earned her Massachusetts Insurance Broker's license in 2002. Donna performs many functions at Safe Harbor including sales and customer service while managing our two busy offices. Primarily located in the Brewster office, she's glad to meet with you in Orleans, too.

Colleen Ormsby, Account Executive, Licensed Producer

Colleen is originally from Worcester, MA but heard the call of the salty Cape air right out of high school. She began her insurance career at a local insurance agency and found that she loved the business. After 19 years at the agency, Colleen accepted a position at a local Mutual insurance company as their Underwriting Manager where she spent 8 years as a student of the business. When she realized that she missed helping clients find insurance solutions, Colleen joined the Safe Harbor team as a licensed Account Executive specializing in bringing friendly and personal service to her clients.

Colleen is proud to have earned her BSBA from the University of Phoenix at age 43. She lives with her family in Harwich Port, where you 'll frequently find her on the beach, in a boat or on the links - enjoying all that live on the Lower Cape has to offer!
