About the author:
At a very young age, Donna Schwontkowski surprised her family with a sketch of a pretty young girl's face. Proud of what she had done, she was surprised when her family warned that becoming an artist was not a desired occupation for girls. Not knowing any better, she took what her family said as gospel and transferred her passion to the development of intellectual skills and honed her cooking skills.
With a Midwestern work ethic, she busied herself by obtaining her first nutrition degree and worked in professional jobs until a friend told her all the medical sciences he was learning in chiropractic school. "It's everything you always wanted to know," he assured her, and she immediately applied, was accepted, and resigned as Dietitian/Food Service Director at a 197-bed nursing home.
While in chiropractic school, she created memory methods for the courses and taught the other students what to do to ace their exams and how to learn large volumes of information quickly. She later named her method the Million Dolllar Memory Method. She set up seminars to help students master their coursework and they flocked to her seminars.
As providence would have it, Donna returned back to her love of drawing the face when a marketing manager failed to organize memory seminars. Counting on the income from those seminars, she enrolled in a 4-week art course. The instructor encouraged her to learn how to do caricatures. She invested in the training, practicing on everyone she met. The next weekend she had a booth at a July 4th festival and made enough money to meet all her expenses.
After graduating and practicing chiropractic medicine with an emphasis in nutrition and herbs for awhile, it was the 911 tragedy that prompted Dr. Donna to create a memory system for people to remember faces flawlessly. Her first book, "Million Dollar Memory for Names & Faces," was followed by the "Who Was That Person?" book series - "How to Identify Someone Just From Their Eyebrows", "How to Identify Someone Just From Their Eyes", and "How to Identify Someone Just From Their Nose". There are worldwide reviews for these books on the website, www.WhoWasThatPerson.com
Dr. Donna still enjoys giving keynote speeches and training in not only face recognition, but also nutrition, health and memory. She can be reached through her website. Now she is planning a course for 5th graders on the Presidents to make them President historians. Let her know if your school needs this information.
