MEET THE ARTISTS

Debbie’s perspective on life and her humor has an element that will get a laugh from anybody. Her comedic timing is naturally clever while being kind but provocative in nature.  Debbie brings to her speaking engagements the ability to create an authentic and vulnerable space as she shines the brightest of lights on topics that many feel shy talking about. Debbie passionately believes that combining humor with education is the only way to approach sensitive topics and she seamlessly weaves the two together to create captivating presentations and that will engage the audience in new and powerful ways.
