I have a background in Management Consulting and Teaching..I brought this together to form The Lurnist
For the last 20+ years I have been working with clients as a management consultant, with the majority of my work helping them with project management and training. I have also spent the last 10 years as a university professor. So I started The Lurnist. Now I put all of my experience and skills to work for entrepreneurs, professionals and small business owners. I help the people that I enjoy working with build their business or brand by teaching them the ins and outs of launching online courses, making their goals achievable.

Maybe it’s just me, but I loooove♥ to teach. My husband is always saying that I am a perpetual student. I take that as a compliment! You can’t teach unless you are learning. I learn something new everyday.
Thanks for your willingness to answer questions in and out of class and for genuinely wanting us to understand the material.
I was incredibly surprised how much I participated. I would definitely take a course by Debra again. You are not only getting an instructor with expertise and experience, but your also getting an instructor who is organized, savvy with tech and a great sense of humor!! Such an awesome course!
