Dana Mather



Dana Mather and Ruth began their work together over 12 years ago. Together, they directed a medically based Health and Wellness center that received thousands of visits monthly. On a daily basis, Dana, taught, encouraged and inspired women to apply principles that helped them have more energy every day--learning first-hand, what worked and what didn’t. As Dana continued her education to complete her master’s degree, she also directed a non-profit for women, “Mom’s House,” an organization that offers hope-filled solutions to single parents with challenges, by assisting them to find a network of supportive services and enables them to complete their education.

Dana is a gifted teacher, speaker, certified health and fitness professional, competitive athlete, and a woman with a heart to encourage other women to be their best. She just finished video production on a new DVD that is now being used in children's education internationally. When she’s not helping other women, she’s dedicated to her first and most important role, being a wife to Bruce Mather M.D., a family physician, and Mom to three amazing boys.
