Working with Deb has completely transformed the way I look at health, exercise, and myself! She is incredibly knowledgeable and insightful and used those skills to tailor make a program for me that gets me excited about working out in a way I’ve never been before. She listens, asks questions, helps to set goals, and pushes you to attain them all while keeping it fun, fresh, and rewarding. I never thought of myself as physically strong before I met Deb, and through her workouts and encouragement I have been able to see how strong I actually was and have continued to grow to be. On our first meeting I told her I that if the only goal I hit would be to be the same size, but stronger I would be happy and now almost a year later she has gotten me there and then some! I free proud when I look in the mirror when I see my muscles, proud when I lift more than I’ve ever been able to, and I feel even more proud just existing in this body that Deb has helped me learn to care of, challenge and love. I feel transformed inside and out by her work and care. Deb is smart, funny, kind and an absolute joy to spend your time with. I can’t recommend Deb highly enough. I am not exaggerating when I say that Deb has changed my life for the best!!! - Krista More...
Deb is my personal trainer at EAC in Evanston. I really lucked out when the training director suggested that Deb would be a good fit for me. In just a couple of months I have more energy and more enthusiasm for working out (and, that is saying something!). I actually look forward to it. Deb is personable and warm. I clearly benefit from her years of professional experience as she is very careful and truly creative about choosing workouts that are appropriate and helpful for my current physical condition. My workouts are varied so I do not get bored. And, we laugh A LOT! I highly recommend her! More...

Deb is amazing - I researched until I found someone with a serious depth of experience with training and also with nutrition knowledge and Deb shines in both categories. I have lost weight that just would not budge before Training with her has made me stronger in my 60s than I was in my 20s! She is a great listener and an outstanding motivator and has a great sense of humor! I wholeheartedly recommend Deb no matter what your goals are. She'll help you reach them! More...
