Deborah has been certified for over 12 years as a Senior Downsizing Specialist and accredited Life Coach specializing in life transitions. She started her first business, Your Organizing Answer, in 2009 after personally experiencing downsizing with her own aging parents. She realized how much these services were needed by seniors and their families who were overwhelmed by transition. In addition to her downsizing and home organizing business services, she teaches, coaches and mentors Downsizing Specialists, and other small businesses, across the US. In 2020, she launched her second business, The Downsizing Institute, to offer Senior Downsizing Specialist Training to fellow entrepreneurs who want to serve the senior community. Her extensive field experience, sense of humor and coaching expertise brings a unique perspective to her courses that you rarely see in traditional business programs.
