As Featured On
"Our agency was creating webinar presentations to assist families in our community during the height of the COVID pandemic.  We needed experts and when we discussed the topic of supporting children with online learning I thought of Debbie given her vast experience in education.  I’m so glad I asked her because she absolutely knocked it out of the park.  She was a delight to work with on planning and brought the perfect amount of knowledge to the presentation so parents didn’t feel overwhelmed.  Debbie did a great job balancing her valuable education and tips while also interacting with participants by responding to their personal questions and concerns. Her warm manner and light humor created an engaging and well received event for all who attended.  We couldn’t have been more pleased with what she gave to our community and can’t wait to use her as a resource again in the future.”
