With over 20 years of experience as a Health & Fitness Trainer/Instructor, and 15+ years experience practicing therapeutic massage, Donna has also served as a corporate health and wellness advisor. In higher education, Donna was the Program Chair of a massage program she established at a private college in Winter Park where later she became a science instructor and then Department Chair of Allied Health.

Native to Hawaii, Donna believes that health is a manifestation of balance, both within the body itself and between the body and the external environment. When the body is internally balanced and in harmony with the external environment, energy flows smoothly throughout to nourish all organs and tissues. By adjusting and stimulating the flow of energy through acupuncture, we stimulate the body's natural healing ability to maintain health and protect against disease.
Together, Donna's "Spirit of Aloha" and expertise in oriental medicine supports her mission to provide individualized health care that is gentle, safe and effective. She has successfully treated conditions such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, chronic low back pain, endometriosis, migraine headaches, tension headaches, weight loss, infertility, anxiety and stress, and addressed women’s health issues along with a wide variety of sports injuries from endurance and crossfit athletes.
