Her knowledge and capabilities provide information and solutions to the needs of any business owner.”

“It was a good summary of information on the Affordable Care Act, which has spread all over the internet. It was clear Debbie has done and continues to do a very good research on the subject. She pointed out the positive and the negative aspects of the healthcare program, not emphasizing her own views but rather suggesting better ways to deal with the new Health Care program.  For me it was very beneficial to her personal family experience with the Program, as I could relate to her story.”

Honestly, the best speaker we ever had.”
