Deb began coaching in 2009, developing the 7-Step Purpose & Possibility program as she guided clients through the process of discovering their purpose, creating new possibilities, and living life powerfully. In 2014, Deb partnered with Susan Johnson to create workshops empowering women facing life transitions and challenges. Together, they created Purpose & Possibility Coaching to serve both women and men in all stages of life. Since then, the duo has created several training and development programs. Recently, they began conducting their courses online.
Deb's coaching background also includes 10 years' training in personal transformation and leadership development. In addition, she has amassed hundreds of hours in broad-spectrum education spanning university courses and 18 years' of continuing education classes, plus seminars, workshops, and other accredited training programs. She is a Certified Life Coach. Her fields of study include positive psychology, neuroplasticity, health and wellness, geriatrics, whole systems design, and quantum physics.
For 26 years, Deb owned and operated a marketing and promotions business providing events for businesses, churches, and non-profit organizations in seven Southwestern states. During that time, she trained and mentored dozens of teams, empowering them to work together in a unique, win-win-win business paradigm that encouraged cooperation rather than competition. Her previous work experience also encompassed corporate, property, and personnel management as well as business administration, oil & gas production analysis, advertising, and commercial art.
Along with three others, Deb co-founded America's largest quantum physics study group and speaker series. The four co-founders organized and hosted weekly live events attended by 250-600 participants; guest speakers included quantum physicists, scientists, professors, medical doctors, alternative medicine practitioners, and theologians. The group's monthly live lecture series attracted audiences of up to 1400, featuring international speakers such as Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Candace Pert, and Dr. Joe Dispenza. Deb conducted research for her coaching practice and interviewed speakers for the group's events. She also wrote articles for publication about professionals whose fields of expertise incorporated aspects of quantum mechanics or whose practices successfully adapted principles of quantum theory to enhance everyday life. Deb also co-produced the Amazing Health Symposium Series and produced the innovative live talk-show, Get Lit!
Deb is an author, experienced speaker and emcee, and the Co-Founder and Managing Director of the Empowering Women Alliance.
