blonde-801985_1280About ME

Here is a little about me. My name is Debbie, I’m a 40-year-old living the dream! LOL…  well trying to anyway! I live in Northern New Jersey. Many say I live in the woods but I call it my oasis. It’s a quieter life, a way for the hustle of the city. One for which I am very grateful for. I met my soulmate 21 years ago and we’ve basically been inseparable since. I am also a mom to my beautiful angel boy who just turned 20 and my 170 lb fur baby-  whose is my partner in crime. Basically, he doesn’t leave my side.
At my 9-5 I am a woman living a male-dominated world in the Manufacturing/ Mechanical Engineering Industry. While it may not be glamorous it is very exciting. Being accepted on to a leadership team in the role of Director of Sales and Marketing and having the opportunity to build a brand, breaking into a very competitive market and seeing your work accepted by the industry is very fulfilling. In just a short three years we have gone from a small NY/ NJ company to being known throughout the USA with product shipping around the world.I am a very driven person and throughout my career, I have been quite fortunate to have the ability to travel effectively down several roads in both the B2B and B2C markets. I have worked with some of the top companies affording me an understanding of nationwide & international markets. Each road has added new competencies which have combined to create my broad skill set in the areas of design, sales, advertising/ pr/ marketing, and management.
Anyway, now that my son is off at college I seem to be at a crossroad and I am looking to create something for me. I am looking to grow as a person and a woman. I looking to inspire and be inspired. I want to celebrate accomplishments of all and have Saylore be a forum for people to turn to learn from and get the inspiration they need to grow.
