What is The Membership?
Do you want to grow your skills, slay your live shots, make deadlines effortlessly, and navigate a big market jump but you don’t know where to begin? That’s the thing about TV news. There’s no roadmap and no guidebook. And not everyone takes the time to help you. That’s where I come in.
Let me be your fairy TV news godmother. I’ve coached hundreds of talented, successful journalists to jump more than 5,000 markets. I’ve helped them create killer reels and made introductions that have set them up for interviews at major networks. If you’ve found your way to this page, odds are you may feel stuck, and need someone to have your back. When you join The Membership, not only do you get a seasoned coach to stand for you, but you are also part of an exclusive network of journalists dedicated to helping you reach your goals. Invest in yourself and see your life change in ways you once thought impossible.
Imagine if you could...
- Feel comfortable, be more conversational, and have straight-up swagger on-air.
- SLAY that live shot every time, drop your mic, and collect compliments and high fives.
- Create a killer reel that can score interviews in your dream market so you can be closer to family and friends.
- Have a proven roadmap to asking better questions, writing more “big market,” and sharpening your on-air appearance.
- Enjoy a mindset shift that boosts your self-esteem, helps you handle haters, quiets the doubt, and embraces hope and abundance.
What They Won't Tell You...
(but what I will)
In case you're wondering...
Here's How The Membership Helps
News is a demanding business, with no instruction manual. News Directors don’t always have time to give feedback, and mentors will give you their time when they have some. Plus, they’re not paid to tell you the tough stuff, so 9.9 times out of 10, they’ll leave that out. I will give you feedback you can implement immediately through regular group Zoom coaching sessions.
My Extensive Network
I will help you create your best reel, introduce you to recruiters and people who work in your dream market, coach you to nail that interview—and help you negotiate. The rest of The Membership squad will also offer their insight and contacts and will cheer you on.
Do you feel like you're ENOUGH? Imposter Syndrome is a real deal-breaker. The most important lesson I've learned is that you can't win in the world, if you're not winning in your mind. I'll give you the tools you can use over and over again to shift your mindset. They've worked for me. And I'll be your biggest cheerleader.

"...a wealth of knowledge..."
"When I met Debra, I felt as though I was lacking in many areas in my field such as live shots, cadence, and honestly just mastering my craft. But after just one session with her, I not only had the confidence to do better but I had a wealth of knowledge to BE BETTER. She practices what she preaches. She believes in you."

"[Debra's] going to be honest with you and that means you have to be honest with yourself. Do EVERYTHING she says. She and I set a goal with a specific date and we achieved it!"
