Ho’onani (Nani) Cuadrado, MSPAS, PA-C

"Deb did amazing work as an Interim Executive Director with Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County. She worked hard to ease the team (Board and Organization) through many transitions as we worked toward a merger with Meals on Wheels Northampton County.

Deb oversaw the day-to-day operations and handled emergency situations with the utmost professionalism. She helped our team members realize their strengths and areas of opportunity while uncovering their true passions in the Organization. The team was given guidance to improve and grow into their roles.

She also worked with our Board and facilitated our discussions around mission, vision and strategic plan. She encouraged us to continue to dig deeper in our conversations to uncover the true priorities of the Board and the Organization. These exercises made us all better equipped to merge with Meals on Wheels Northampton County and to have a stronger identity and voice as a Board going into the discussion."

She is always well prepared, relevant and brings a wealth of business experience from both the non-profit and for-profit sectors, as well as engaging life experience.

Deb’s approachable mix of humor, humility and knowledge not only hits the target for audience learning, but leaves everyone in the room thoroughly delighted."

"The impact of Deb's leadership coaching on one of our employees was significant. She established a positive and trusting connection, and offered solid training in important skills and behaviors required for effective leadership.

Deb clearly has a passion for the work. That, coupled with her knowledge of what it takes to be an effective leader and her background in nonprofit work makes her especially effective. Deb is a great person to work with and delivers on her promises."  

Nancy Knoebel
CEO, Easterseals of Eastern Pennsylvania

"I’ve been involved in two separate leadership programs through Think Good Leadership – a personal evaluation and plan directly with Deb as well as a Leadership Circle. Both have been enormously helpful to me on my leadership journey.

Deb is insightful and honest. She helps you get to the heart of things, helps you better understand where you are at and where you are going and encourages growth in that direction while providing tools for that growth.

Whether working together with her one-on-one, in a group setting, or in a large presentation, she is an amazing coach and I wish I could start every day with her whispering in my ear. "

Lina Barbieri '94, CFRE
AVP, Annual Giving, DeSales University

“I had the privilege of working with Deb as part of both her individual coaching program and inaugural Emerging Leaders Synergy Circle. I was initially skeptical about working with a leadership “coach,” but found the experience to be empowering, reenergizing and game-changing!

I felt Deb was someone who was just as invested in my success as I am, a trusted resource I could call on when needed, and someone I could confide in. Deb provided the tools to help me leverage my individual style into my own brand of leadership.

Since working with Deb, I can feel and see a real difference in the way I approach challenging situations, deal with conflict, and even see myself.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Deb and excited about what the future holds for me both professionally and personally!”
