My Why

Hello Friends! I'm Debra and welcome to my passion project!

OK ladies, time for some real talk. You know how you walk into someone’s house for game night, book club, Bunko or just a good old fashioned "Wine down Wednesday" and sure enough there are ladies standing around chatting, drinking, snacking, etc? You attempt to introduce yourself and meet someone new, and sure enough the first question asked is, “So, what do you do?"

Getting to know others and meeting new people, I guess you could say, is a thing for me. Being naturally chatty and curious, I hardly shy away from an opportunity to meet new people and form connections.

Creating Have A Seat...Conversations with Women in the Workplace Podcast was a way for me to engage in weekly conversations with women about their career journey and share their stories in a fun and supportive way. I truly believe we all have a unique story to tell; we add value in what we do and are rock stars in our own right and I'm excited to bring you these conversations every week.

My hope is that this show will have a "come in and have a seat" vibe, with or without the wine, absolutely no judgement here! By coming to the table and sharing our experiences, maybe, just maybe, we'll find that we're not so different after all.

A special shout out to my Executive Producer + husband Paul for being the creative force behind all my crazy ideas, I wouldn't have made it this far without him. Love you honey!

If you would like to be a guest on the show and share your story, please feel free to contact me, I would welcome the chance to Have A Seat and continue the conversation with you too!

But don't just take my word for it:

Hello Miss Debra. You did a great job with time delay and all. Thanks for including me in your salute to Moms Day. Such an honor. What a great opportunity for us all to share in this way. Never in my wildest... thanks so very much and the very best to you. ~ Jeane Williams, Episode 20

Debra, that recording was one of the highlights of the past few months!  It was a very cool experience and I enjoyed our chat. Sometimes, you don’t even realize things about yourself until you start talking through them! ~ Ayanna Chambliss, Episode 31

"I am so glad I stepped out of my shell and joined you in the conversation! I am grateful for the opportunity! Thank you so much!!" ~ Emily Carlsen, Episode 30
