Meet Debbie Heiser

Educator. Trainer. Leader. Coach.


"Throughout my journey, I’ve embraced the philosophy of leading with the broader purpose of helping others to develop and perform at a high level." - Debbie


Born and raised in the Midwest, it’s safe to say I’ve always valued the importance of community and embraced the idea that we all have a unique purpose to fulfill. Initially, this led me down the path of education. After earning my bachelor’s degree, I started teaching in public education with the goal of helping young people realize their full potential. But I had a strong drive of my own that couldn’t quite be satiated in the classroom.


That’s when I ventured into the business world — first in sales for Sprint Yellow Pages, then as a sales trainer at Sprint. In those roles, I applied my teaching knowledge and developed coaching skills. Providing feedback to trainees was essential to help reframe their approaches and believe in their ability to sell.


I rose through the ranks at Sprint and eventually moved to Citi, where I became Vice President of Training. Decades in the world of large corporations provided ample opportunities to grow and learn, with challenges that could literally stretch across the country. However, this expansion of scale also clarified that my passions thrived in more personal interactions. That’s why, in 2014, I decided to move to a medium-sized company in Sandpoint, Idaho — an incredibly gorgeous town not far from the Canadian border. Once settled, I moved into the role of CFO and began working on my Masters in Organizational Leadership, with an emphasis in Servant Leadership, at Gonzaga University.


In Sandpoint, a friend and former colleague with whom I’d conducted business assessments asked me to help get her business ready to sell within three years. This was my first leap into business consulting. Initially, I focused on the operational, HR, and leadership components of the business by helping with KPI’s, hiring, and processes. Over time and practice, I’ve incorporated more and more around clear and concise plans, allowing my clients to overcome the
binds holding them back so they can get out of their own way, and jump into the adventure of life!


Today, I’m coaching full-time, teaching leadership courses at Gonzaga University, and loving every
moment of my life in Idaho as an avid skier, devoted friend and mother, and an inspiring grandmother.


Throughout my journey, I’ve embraced the philosophy of leading with the broader purpose of helping others to develop and perform at a high level. This also includes developing leaders in the community in which I live through volunteering on numerous boards and as part of an International Women’s Mastermind that provides coaching and support to women around the world who are making a massive impact.


I love working with people to help them step into the best version of themselves through their businesses. Helping you state and solidify your goals, and then take meaningful steps to become the person you need to be to achieve them is a skill I’m proud to possess and a journey I can’t wait to take with you.
