About Debra

I'm an audio producer, writer, editor and host.  I produce and host the podcast, The Final Say: Conversations with People Facing Death. I've also done commentary for NPR. As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, I studied Communications which involved not only journalism, but fiction and screenwriting. I've written several non-fiction books, the most recent being, It's Not About the Hair: And Other Certainties of Life & Cancer.  

I have Master's degrees in Christian Arts and in Divinity. I am a Board Certified Chaplain and have worked for both hospice and hospitals for over 40 years. 

My strength is my enthusiasm for going deep in conversations while at the same time maintaining curiosity and humor.
