Donaldson attended Marysville-Pilchuck High School and graduated from Central Washington University's Paramedicine Program. Donaldson also previously served as a firefighter at Snohomish County Fire District 17 (Granite Falls), District 19 (Silvana), Lake Stevens and North County Fire/EMS.

Firefighter/Paramedic Matt Hickman is also joining the Marysville Fire District. Hickman, who is from Whidbey Island and now lives in Everett, earned a Bachelor's Degree in Paramedicine from Central Washington University and is now an EMT instructor at Everett Community College. Hickman also served as a firefighter in Arlington and at South Snohomish County Fire and Rescue.
