Why do I do what I do? 

Well, I know from my own experience how difficult it can be to do it all. Sometimes life presents us with more challenges than we feel we can handle on our own.  In the midst of all my activities as a leader, entrepreneur, homeowner, family member and friend, I have lived through diagnoses, divorce, death of loved ones, corporate downsizing, and uncomfortable disputes. My journey has demonstrated the value of my skills as a researcher, communications strategist and personal advisor, as well as a fiercely loving individual.  It would be my honor to support you too, to find your best possible outcomes from disturbing circumstances. Debra
