Debby has a passion and natural gift for seeing, understanding, and exploring issues of individual and group identity, sameness and difference, and sources of affiliation and strength.  Over the 3+ years that we have been peer collaborators, I have relished her spirited contributions and seen them energize our group dynamic. Exploring topics that can sometimes make us feel vulnerable can also make much needed authentic conversation much harder – Debby brought a dose of courageous candor and flexible accommodation to our many unscripted/live discussions and role modeled our group norms of safe-to-share and acceptance.  I’ve learned much from Debby and I’m glad others will have the chance to share her wisdom.
