Health Coach Donna Miller says her children have always inspired her to better herself, but it wasn't until 2012 that their influence led her to a new career. In December of 2011, her youngest daughter was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 19. While helping her daughter battle, and eventually, defeat the disease, Donna began learning how nutrition and holistic lifestyle changes can not only bolster the recovery process, but lead to a healthier life. Her discoveries inspired her to enroll in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and complete her training as a health coach. Through nutritional guidance and life-coaching techniques, she helps her clients restore their bodies' natural balance, improve their mood, and increase their energy without grinding coffee beans into everything they eat.

Using bio-identical hormones, nutrition, and weight-loss plans, Dr. David P. Kalin helps patients improve their quality of life. Drawing from more than 30 years of medical experience, he and his team of specialists test blood, nutrients, and DNA telomeres to optimize patients' biological age. After a consultation, he then outlines customized treatment plans that can incorporate weight loss programs, nutritional therapy, or hormone replacement therapy that effectively makes the body feel younger.
While working as a personal trainer at his college’s recreation center, Doctor of Chiropractic Taylor Levick learned that the gym was used for more than weight loss and muscle gain. It also served as the stomping grounds for people to alleviate pain via corrective exercises. The void of pharmaceuticals to ease discomfort intrigued Dr. Levick, and in turn he followed a path in chiropractic care. At Tampa Sport & Spine, he helps patients regain their health by manually adjusting their spines, applying Kinesio tape to injured areas, and customizing corrective exercise plans.

She's owned and managed a diverse array of businesses, but it seems it was only a matter of time before she found her calling. Her whole life, Debbie has been fascinated by hypnosis and psychology, and been a listening ear for friends and family. After a stretch of life-changing spiritual experiences, she decided to become certified in clinical hypnotherapy.
Debbie has helped clients on both sides of the Atlantic improve their lives through targeted suggestion. She's registered with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and uses sessions to set positive intentions and help clients regress back to the causes of problematic behaviors.
