Proudest Professional Achievement and Why? 
Published the best-selling book, The Word on Coaching, with two fellow coaches. I admire people who are willing to step up and lead. The book was written to support leaders, whether they have the formal title or not, to realize their full potential because I know that leadership can be hard. 

Proudest Personal Achievement and Why? 
Debby is the founder of the 2911 Group Inc, a faith-based non-profit organization designed to equip young women with tools, information, encouragement, and support to face life’s challenges and maximize their potential.  Their mission focuses on self-confidence, self-esteem, leadership skills, and social responsibility.

Three words someone else would use to describe me:
empathetic, creative, achiever

I consider a day a success if:
I have laughed, worked hard, taken time to rest, learned something new, and encouraged another.
