I’m a network TV correspondent, on-camera confidence coach, podcast host, and soon-to-be author. My passion is amplifying untold stories and helping people harness their power, on and off camera.


I’ve been writing and delivering breaking news on TV in major markets for more than a dozen years. I’ve won a Murrow and an Emmy and my reports can be seen on CBS stations across the country. And……I’m a former high school dropout. I had ZERO connections and even LESS confidence. If I can GTFO of my head to create my dream life, you can create anything.

Who do I Help?

I coach TV reporters and anchors to become more confident on camera and navigate the TV News industry so they can have their best shot at their dream job and dream life. I also help business owners, side hustlers, and anyone with a mission and a message – from psychotherapists to real estate agents to experts, authors, influencers, and coaches.

I do this through one-on-one coaching, digital courses, group training, and talks. Huge companies like BuzzFeed, American Express, and Fiverr work with me to train, coach, and inspire. Private companies hire me for media training. Conferences book me as their keynote speaker. I also work with regular people like you and me.

“ She helped me realize, I am ready, I can do this. She boosted my confidence, and also helped me with the practicalities of how to write pitches, make contact with people and boom, it happened that fast, within two weeks, I’ve been on TV 4 times. ”

“ Debra’s going to be honest with you and that means you have to be honest with yourself. Do EVERYTHING she says. She and I set a goal with a specific date and we achieved it! “

“ Before working with Debra, I was self-conscious of being on video…and after I had the confidence that I can step out and have an amazing time, show my best self, show off my product and my company. Since meeting Debra, I’ve been on TV 4 times and I really owe it all to her. “

My improbable journey from high school dropout to Network TV Correspondent was riddled with ups and downs and resulted in lots of life lessons. I’ve put many in my podcast called “Sh*t I Wish I Knew In My Twenties” and soon, they’ll be showcased in a book of the same name. All of my coaching, courses, and talks are infused with transparency, my brand of in-your-face inspiration, and a dedication to helping you get out of your own way so you can create your dream life.

You can do this. I’m proof.

Get ready to have someone stand for your greatness one more time than you can stand for your smallness. And meet my rescue dog Murray. He knows you can do it too.
