She earned her Master’s in the Science of Management from Indiana Wesleyan University. Debbie has worked for the last eight years as the Director of Accounting for The Center for Health Affairs, a hospital trade association serving Northeast Ohio.

Debbie has been a member of Toastmaster’s International for eight years. Toastmasters is an organization with a self-paced Communication and Leadership development program.

Both of these accomplishments have given Debbie a greater understanding about Communication and Leadership.

The speech she will be presenting is “Communicating Across the Generations – Managing a Changing Workplace”. The workplace has become more diversified in many ways. One of those ways is the different communication styles of all the people that work together. The differences will increase as rapidly as technology changes. The hope is that this speech will provide you a better understand of the differences and how to bridge those gaps in communication.
