BARNSTABLE (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $1.8 million from a Cape Cod timeshare resort where she worked.

Prosecutors say 63-year-old Donna Zoppi, of Eastham, was sentenced to up to three years in state prison after pleading guilty this week to larceny.

The office of state Attorney General Maura Healey says from 2008 until 2015, while the office manager at Harbor Hill in Provincetown, Zoppi wrote herself checks from the resort’s account, used its debit card for personal purchases, made ATM withdrawals from the resort’s account, and wired money directly from the Harbor Hill account to her personal account.

During the same period, Zoppi took lavish vacations, bought a horse for her stepdaughter, and purchased club level seats at Gillette Stadium.

Harbor Hill declared bankruptcy in 2016.
