“Listen first, talk second, and be present always,” Deborah’s been known to say.

She challenges others to stretch their understanding of what is normal. Not hesitating to apply this belief to experiential learning, she supports exploring new models for personal and professional growth, which is why she’s here. Her vast experience in professional education continues to spark new ideas and great opportunities as we progress. For her, higher education is a combination of empowerment and empathy, resulting in boldness informed by understanding.
