“I attended one of Debra’s workshops/talks. I was very impressed with her knowledge and her expertise in her field. I was particularly taken with her thinking ‘outside of the box’ when there seemed to be an insurmountable block to think of solutions that would benefit the client. I would highly recommend her services.”
