Debra Griest, PhD
Debra has been contributing to VoicePRO for more than 20 years as a thought partner, colleague and coach. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge as an organizational development consultant and executive coach.
She started her career working with NASA, and her coaching specialty is working with people that have technical degrees (engineers, physicians, lawyers, etc.) that are also leaders in the organizations they serve.
Debra’s credentials are distinguished with a BS/MS combined honors degree from The Ohio State University, a PhD from Case Western Reserve University in Organization Behavior, and an MA from Ashland Theological Seminary.
She loves the approach used by VoicePRO to working with busy professionals. She finds it practical and tied to their daily lives – not theoretical or hypothetical. Debra calls her work joyful because she serves clients who are bright, committed, responsive, & serious about growth. She also enjoys the colleagues with whom she works.
Debra enjoys spending time with her husband, John, their large extended family and of course Jake and Lucas, their energetic Labrador retrievers.
