Meet Dr. Donna
Dr. Donna has been studying adolescent health risk behaviors in girls for over 15 years. During this time she has taught courses on mother daughter communication, created a cable television talk show called Girl Talk which was geared toward promoting the awareness of health in preteen girls; and has been a speaker at myriads of venues on Girls Health. As a proud mother of two amazing daughters, 22 and 9, Donna has expertise not only from research but also from personal experience.
Now Dr. Donna is bringing her services to your home. It is her hope to see every mother-daughter relationship get through hard times and become a power duo to tackle all seasons of life. Given her experiences as a teenage mother, Donna has dedicated her career to helping mothers form a strong bond with their daughters throughout their lifespan.
Her focus starts with teenage daughters who have a greater propensity to engage in risky behaviors that can ultimately reduce the quality of life throughout a woman’s lifespan. Dr. Donna is also interested in the relationship between a mother and daughter during the adult years. As her own experiences have confirmed there is much opportunity for a renewed, mature connection which could help and inspire younger generations. As an expert in mother daughter communication, Dr. Donna invites you to be inspired not only by learning more about your daughter but also learning more about yourself!
