It's impossible to pick a single basis to recommend Deb. Colleague, co-worker, partner all apply but don't do the basis for my recommendation justice. Perhaps friend, advisor and mentor are better descriptors. Deb is an amazing person and one of the most competent strategic advisors I know. She is compassionate, smart, funny and helpful all in one. Believe me when I tell you, you want Deb on your team. You will be a better more competent person for it.
