This simple but often overlooked inspires her wellness speaking.
A passionate advocate for having the knowledge and resources to live truly healthy lives, Dr. Donna teaches what it really means to be healthy and how to do it in a way that addresses your unique needs. Understanding that a healthy lifestyle involves more than food and fitness, she champions a comprehensive approach to wellness. This holistic approach stems from her career as a community pediatrician. A former board certified pediatrician, Dr. Hamilton frequently saw external factors like stress, environment, and relationships impact not only her patients’ health but also their caregivers’. Addressing these issues often was a major factor in her patients’ ability to truly become well. She combines her solid foundation in traditional medicine with additional holistic health and spiritual life coach training to teach easy and effective wellness tools and strategies for living a healthy lifestyle.
On a mission to help everyone live the healthy, satisfying lives we’re meant to live, Dr. Donna’s practical and informative health and wellness presentations teach participants how to plot a path toward health that makes sense for them. During her career as a community pediatrician Dr. Donna saw firsthand that a healthy lifestyle involves more than food and fitness. She also became acutely aware that our society had an “illness focus” rather than a “wellness focus” while simultaneously facing increasing difficulty offering the education most parents and children needed to maintain healthy lifestyles. This prompted Dr. Hamilton to “hang up her stethoscope” and begin using her medical expertise to teach adults how to navigate the sometimes complex journey to optimal health and wellness.
