Workshops and Speaking


I really enjoying doing podcasts and webinars because I love good conversations about caregiving! Below are just a few:

For March of Dimes Canada, Dr. Zachary White and I (we are co-authors of our book, The Unexpected Journey of Caring) host a number of online workshop series. Check HERE for current (FREE but you have to register) events.

Recently I spoke with Dr. Hsien Seow about caregiving in an episode of his terrific new palliative care podcast series for caregivers, The Waiting Room Revolution. Listen HERE

Dr. Zachary White and I spoke about our book, The Unexpected Journey of Caring on The Kindness Podcast - you can listen HERE.

HERE I speak about my own caregiving journey on the terrific podcast, Saint Someone. 

HERE I speak with Rabbi Richard Address in his podcast, Jewish Sacred Aging. 


“Donna was enlightening and empowering”
“I LOVED listening to Donna!! She really spoke to my heart and I felt encouraged.”
“Donna was excellent”
“ My favourite part was the follow-up Q & A’s with Donna and hearing other people’s experiences”

I regularly address groups on issues related to caregiving.  I have given addresses as the keynote speaker at the 2016 American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine Conference (AACPDM), London School of Economics (Literary Festival, 2010),  The International Centre for Evidence in Disability (2010), The Festival of International Conferences on Caregiving, Disability, Aging and Technology (FICCDAT, 2011),  Families Matter (AGM, 2011) and Langley Association for Community Living (AGM, 2012), to name a few.

Here a few samples of my speaking engagements....
My Chambers Family Lifespan Address begins at 17:00 on this reel.

At McGill University, I spoke about the Caregiving Effect for a Palliative Care Symposium. You can listen below.
