“Medical Doctor, Healthy Lifestyle Coach, Author, Educator, Wife and Mum, Leadership Trainer and Coach of John C. Maxwell Global Team, and Inspirational Keynote Speaker. Isabel has been a medical doctor since 1991, now specialising in functional medicine. Dr. Isabel’s coaching is based on functional medicine principles. Functional medicine addresses the root cause of disease, using a systems approach, and engages both the patient and the practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Dr. Isabel shifts from the traditional disease-centered focus of medicine to a more patient–centered approach. She works to address you as a whole person, by looking at your lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, and self‐talk. ”

“ What I believe is unique in my offering to any mastermind group, corporate and personal coaching, is my common ground to many different people. As John Maxwell's book says; "Sometimes You Win and Sometimes You Learn". Oh, how I have learned! I have experienced: Failures as a young adult, putting me in the homeless category for an ugly period of time. Going from washing dishes to Executive Chef in Private Country Clubs in USA. Giving it all up and moving a family to a new country (New Zealand). Being an “At-Home-Dad” for 18 years in a woman’s world. Reinventing myself in my 50’s with a hunger and desire to Be My Best. Yummy marriage of 36 years and raising two Magnificent daughters.”
What to Expect from Dr. Isabel MD (Doctoronamission™)
Kaboom, Pow, Passionate, Creative, High-energy, Heartfelt, Life-changing, Humble, and a True Connector are some of the words used to describe the feelings after a Dr. Isabel speaking event. Isabel has a unique ability to effectively connect with her audiences with simple, yet profound principles. Drawing from her personal experiences as they relate to having an alcoholic father, depression, scholastic struggles, and other obstacles of life, Isabel is an "open book" to connect inspiring messages to people of all demographic segments. Dr. Isabel MD dropped out of University three times in pursuit of her dream of becoming a medical doctor. For most people, that would have been the end of any academic aspirations. For Isabel, it was a springboard to future success! She received her Bachelors of Science in 1985, Medical Doctor Degree in 1991, and completed her family practice residency in 1995. Now having sat face to face with over 500,000 patients, Isabel has become a performance catalyst. Besides being a conference keynote speaker, Isabel is skilled at facilitating workshops, seminars, university medical students, and executive groups of all sizes.
