Debra also began her professional modeling career as a full-figure print and runway model and voice-over artist. Here is a sample of some of Debra's print work:
After pursuing her own modeling career, Debra opened The Professional Edge Modeling and Talent Agency in 1991. After being in business for one year, The Professional Edge was invited to become a member of the American Modeling Association. And, after being a member for only one year, Debra was elected by her peers to serve two consecutive terms as the President of the association - the first time in the history of the association that someone had served two consecutive terms as President.
The Professional Edge became the only Missouri agency invited to showcase models and talent at the American Modeling and Talent Convention. Over the years, Debra led her models/talent to win numerous awards including "Agency of the Year."
After selling the modeling agency, Debra utilized her skills as a skin care specialist, make-up artist, pageant coach, business owner and speaker/trainer to become a contracted corporate trainer and coach. She has been a featured speaker/trainer for Women's Leadership and Empowerment Conferences nationwide.
In 2007, Debra founded Image Development Group Event Staffing & Speakers Bureau and continues as a corporate trainer, pageant coach and successful entrepreneur.
