Deb attended the College of DuPage for business classes. In four short years, right out of high school, all of her various jobs would make her an autodidact. She, of course, excelled in the school of hard knocks.
Martin Michael Diaz, Deb’s late husband, died so that she could one day live the life she left behind 23 years ago. Deb is actively involved in coaching clients in grief, relationships, and entrepreneurship. She is thankful for www.soberrecovery.com. Without this site, she may not be here. Help is only one click away. Through sharing the pain of loss with other addicts, many have held on, if only one more day.
Deb is happily remarried to Raymond. The night they met was kismet. He is an officer, a gentleman, and is a wonderful caretaker with Deb’s complete disability. When she met Raymond, she thought that was the happy ending of her story… but she learned that it’s just the next chapter.
Deb’s words to live by are engraved on a 40-year-old plaque that hangs in her den: “Do what you can, and then pray to God to give you the power to do what you cannot.” – St. Augustine
Deb credits the book When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Harold Kushner for being the catalyst that made her move past her grief and get ready to celebrate the journey of finding her own identity.

We Are Built to Survive: My Life of Trials, Tribulations, Terror, Tragedy and Transitions
The journey is not always paved with roses, and sometimes it’s not one day at a time, but one step at a time. Deb teaches through her core values and strengths that patience, perseverance, persistence and a promise most definitely has made her victorious. Through her transitions of building a business with her late husband, losing her business partner, going forward and operating on her own, and exceeding all her expectations along the way to freedom, she is reinventing herself as the author she was meant to be, and ultimately found her purpose through her higher power and this beautiful Universe.
