About Deb:

Deb Krier [pronounced krear] is a coalition builder and warrior who is rewriting the playbook on how to live with cancer. Diagnosed with Stage 4 Triple Positive Breast Cancer in 2015 and then diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2023, she is on a mission to ensure that we are no longer “fine” with cancer. Her goal is to empower those dealing with cancer to embrace their inner Warrior so that they build a tribe, energize their voices, and expand their choices.

Businesses who have employees on this journey often have many questions regarding how they can support the employee. In addition to Federal and State laws that apply, it’s also important to have empathy in a difficult situation. It’s also important to know how to deal with co-workers, clients, and business associates during this time. Deb works with businesses to help them navigate these challenges.

Deb founded Wise Women Communications, LLC (WWC), an award-winning, full-service public relations and marketing firm. She hosts the podcast The Business Power Hour™, which began over 10 years ago and is nearing 900 episodes.
