Prior to starting her Health Coaching business, she was the business manager for an Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Center and a partner in a cosmetic practice where she designed a holistic health program to help patients obtain optimal health. In this program, she used a revolutionary tool developed to measure the carotenoid antioxidant levels in skin and prove the effectiveness of diet and supplements in improving overall antioxidant health. Through these findings she encouraged patients to know the source and eat more fruits and vegetables while continuing to use supplements if necessary. She implemented this program in doctors’ offices and wellness centers throughout the northeast, as well as representing one of the top nutritional product companies in the world.
Donna has always had a passion for health and nutrition and she enjoys sharing this knowledge with others. Consequently, she decided to start her own Health Coaching business. She loves to support people who are motivated to change old habits. She feels privileged to be the catalyst for healthy change and the one who encourages staying the course. Her business is for those who realize the value of improvement is worth the commitment.
