Hello XC friends. I am Donna Walker, I reside with my husband of 37 years, Steve Walker, in Buford, Georgia. I graduated from Winthrop College with a BS degree in Business Education and a minor in Accounting and Economics. I was an accountant for Ambulatory Services of America for 8 years in the Atlanta area. When my first child was born I decided it was time to be a stay at home mom. I have two children, Ginnie age 28 who graduated from UNG and received her MBA from Brenau University and William age 19 who is a Sophomore at UNG in Dahlonega. Both of my children were adopted at birth. What an unexpected blessing! When our daughter was very young Steve and I did foster care for Gwinnett County and had 9 children come through our home. It was very challenging and eye opening at times but I will always cherish those moments. We believe we made a difference in their little lives.
I have been self-employed for over 30 years and am a partner in Walker Financial, Inc. I worked in the accounting end of the business for many years and 11 years ago I received my Georgia insurance license. I have been working extensively with people age 65 and older for the last 10 years assisting in different areas of planning with Medicare choices. I have access to the major carriers for both Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans. I have placed hundreds of clients in these plans by helping them decide which plan addresses their specific needs most appropriately. It definitely is not “ONE SIZE FITS ALL.”
Over 2 years ago, I became a jeweler with Premier Designs which is based out of Dallas, Texas. I have truly enjoyed meeting new ladies and helping them accessorize their outfits with beautiful high fashion jewelry. The relationships I have made working in this field has helped me make new friends and be a better person. I am so glad this opportunity knocked on my door and I walked through.
I look forward to meeting all the ladies at our XC meetings. I want to be a blessing to you and help you increase your business.
A few years ago I never would have guessed that some of my worst days would lead to me getting to live my passion everyday, and that Network Marketing would be my vehicle-no way!!
I have been living a natural wellness lifestyle since the 70's when I was a young mom became very sick. After dealing with doctors and multiple meds for 7 years, I took charge of my health, changed my eating and changed my life. Since then I very rarely use our "healthcare system," preferring to exhaust all natural methods first.
As you can tell, I'm not as young as I once was! I'm a wife, mother of 2 and grandmother of 6. I have had numerous jobs in my life, but am happiest as an entrepreneur. Most recently my daughter and I were decorative painters, until you know what happened in 2008. That is when I went to college for the first time, on a path to becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant. It did not happen exactly that way, and I graduated in 2013 from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. That is where I heard about doTERRA essential oils.
Now I spend my time empowering families to take control of their wellness with real food and purest essential oils available. I LOVE doTERRA as a company and a product and cannot imagine my life without it. AND I LOVE network marketing and networking, especially with women. I am very excited to be part of XC now as well.
