Deborah Spector, President CS&I
I thought I was born to be a dancer. I spent hours and hours in the dance studio even while I studied and worked. An untimely accident led me down a different path, but not before I was imprinted with a lot of discipline and an uncanny ability to stretch my days to make everything fit!
While in graduate school I was invited to work on my first nonprofit project. First, I co-wrote a grant for Georgia’s first rape crisis center. Then I was charged with developing and implementing a comprehensive PR plan, that included community outreach.
I was hooked! My subsequent successes were fostered by a number of mentors who guided me on this path.
I soon discovered that my real strengths involved strategic marketing communications planning & implementation and special events. All my work is focused on helping organizations cut through the noise in the marketplace while raising much-needed funds.
When I’m not consulting or writing, you can find me out at the barn with my horses Pascha and Black Olive or walking around the neighborhood with my dogs Kiwi and Keno. They are my true teachers and I’m overwhelmed by how much I learn.
