Donna is a certified Holistic Life Coach and wellness program developer. She has always been a sports enthusiast since she was young and found that the one thing that has been missing most of her life was how important a nutrition/exercise life balance is!
When she was younger, Donna could be found on almost any day of the week bowling somewhere competitively! (Yes, she was a very accomplished competitive bowler - however, she is very humble about it and rarely talks about it!). In recent years, through her own health journey, she has re-discovered health and wellness and is extremely passionate about coaching others to set and accomplish their goals. No matter how big or small, she LOVES helping people realize they have the capability to change their own lives! Donna is extremely relatable and intuitive with others, which sets her apart from other coaches. She has even developed her own wellness event titled Wellamania! for corporate businesses and is in the process of launching that.
Fun Fact: Donna is a crazy cat lady – She and her husband rescued 4 cats from under her neighbor’s deck 10 years ago has been attached ever since.
