"The Brilliance-Based® Connecting Mastermind was the perfect reboot to my networking strategy and plan. Debra is an excellent and empathetic facilitator and her guidance helped me get the most from the group. Having a focused group to play with messaging and networking strategy was super helpful in helping me kickstart and refine my path forward. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who needs to get started or re-started with their connection strategies and confidence."

"It gave me a game plan for networking effectively and efficiently. I had an opportunity to interact with other women professionals and talk through our roadblocks, both logistical (e.g. digital networking) and emotional (feeling transactional). Plus it was a kick in the pants that I haven't been taking my networking seriously & that's why it hasn't been yielding results!"

After training as a mediator and an ombudsman, she also studied with Brené Brown to become a Dare to Lead professional.

She's a voracious reader, theater-lover, occasional intuitive painter, and sometimes knitter who delights in roasting vegetables. Debra relishes time with her son and daughter when they are home from college. 

"I enjoyed simply being in Debra's book club for six weeks--connecting with new women, refocusing my approach to networking, and, of course, getting to talk to Debra every week. I picked up some really helpful insights and networking tips, and imagined I'd try them out...someday.

And then, two weeks after the class ended, I found myself registered for a networking event. When the evening for the event arrived, I, of course, wanted to stay home rather than venture out into the cold unknown. It's safe to say that Debra's course was the impetus for my getting up and out of the house. And for my mingling with strangers. And for my guiding the conversation with questions. And for my connecting with several people in high-up roles in their organizations.
I don't know where it will lead, but it was such a lovely way to navigate an event where I knew only one person--the speaker--and come away with interesting connections, opportunities and open doors. Thank you Debra!!​​​​​​​
