Sought out for her practical wisdom, Debra Kunz is often asked her thoughts on relationships and decision making. As a facilitator, author, coach and speaker, her great passion is expanding perspectives and inspiring Deliberate Growth™. She loves that light bulb moment when a person realizes something new about themselves or how to make their life better, and for two and a half decades Debra has been the requested level-headed guide for life, relationship and business complications.
Throughout her business career that spans several industries, Debra has been drawing people onto the same page, heading them in the same direction, and facilitating teams to specific outcomes. Debra’s consulting clients and audiences embrace her ability to get to the heart of the matter, helping them to identify obstacles and opportunities they can’t see. She guides them to make effective decisions and build relationships to move the organization forward.
By applying her business savvy to her own relationships – engaging her business sense, common sense, and sixth sense – Debra developed a dating sense that allowed her to establish standards and direction for the choices she makes in her own love life. Her path to become an author emerged as friends encouraged her to share that practical wisdom to help other women learn about themselves, define what they want, and have the strength to make good, deliberate decisions.
