“I’ve Worn Many Hats” is an inspirational read, demonstrating

our human frailties, one’s ability to survive personal adversity and how we can learn to forgive both ourselves and others.

It is a story of redemption.

Canadian Anne Hamilton Fowler appeared to have it all. However, life is not always as idyllic as it seems and at age twenty a series of events almost destroyed her.
Emerging from the wreckage, she reinvented herself, 
started over, and proceeded to live on the edge with a risk-taking lifestyle.                                                                  

Then, in 1993 an event experienced during a trip
to Central America changed everything...

Anne Fowler, only child of Audrey and Stewart Hamilton, was raised in Toronto where she attended Leaside
High School and Toronto Western Hospital School of Nursing. In 1962 American Airlines beckoned her to
Dallas, Texas and life in the sky as a flight attendant. Twice divorced, Anne first married a young minister

from Louisiana and then long-time best friend Dr. Bob Fowler of Toronto. They raised a daughter and son who

later produced a grandson and granddaughter. In 2001, Anne retired, closed her company, Hamilton Enterprises,

and left behind a thirty year career in Human Resources. She relocated to El Progreso, Honduras to volunteer at

a clinic where care is provided for patients who lack the funds to be treated elsewhere. During this time, Anne

developed the Visiting Doctor program for international ophthalmologists, started the Healthy Living Education

project in local elementary schools, and helped with a variety of clinic and community activities. In 2006, after
purchasing property in the small north coast village of El Porvenir, she built Hamilton Benest House, a home

providing accommodation for visiting dentists, doctors, teachers, and other volunteers. Her major program in 2021 is Phase Two of the
Healthy Living Program. This annual dental program, conducted by two Canadian dental teams, provides dental care for over 1,000 elementary
school students in the area. Anne’s programs continue to thrive and she has continued to develop community initiatives designed to
improve the lives of Hondurans. Anne divides her year between El Porvenir and her Haliburton cottage north of Toronto.
