Donna Rune

Operations & Client Services Manager


My responsibilities at Nautica Wealth Advisors include helping clients by preparing paperwork, opening accounts, processing transfers of funds and helping answer the day to day questions clients have and referring them to an advisor when necessary. I pride myself in striving for accuracy in all I do.  In addition to all of the above, I serve as Nautica’s Operations and Client Services Manager, helping to make sure the day to day operations of the office run smoothly.

In October of 1995 I was employed by Wayne Warner & Associates who ultimately merged with Lerner & Lerner becoming Nautica Wealth Advisors.

Before working in the investment industry, I was Executive Officer of the Fallbrook Association of REALTORS® for 19 plus years. My duties there included all aspects of office management including budgeting, managing office personnel and working closely with the National Association of REALTORS® and the California Association of REALTORS®.

One of the things I enjoy doing in my free time is gardening. I have an organic vegetable garden. Spending time in the garden centers me and also produces lots of organic vegetables for me to enjoy. I also enjoy swimming and dancing. Some of my best memories and times include the time I spend with my six great grandchildren ranging in age from 1-1/2 to 10.
