Deborah Brown-Volkman, (PCC) is the President & Founder of Surpass Your Dreams, a global career, life, mentor and wellness coaching company that was founded in 1998. Deborah’s wellness credentials include being a Certified Wellness Coach (CWC), a Certified Wellness Inventory Specialist (CWIS), a Diet and Nutritional Advisor, and the author of “How To Feel Great At Work Every Day, Six Steps For Creating A High-Energy Success Plan For Your Career.” Deborah has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune Magazine, and many other well-known publications. Deborah is also the author of several best-selling books including; Coach Yourself To A New Career, Don’t Blow It! The Right Words For The Right Job, and Four Steps To Building A Profitable Coaching Practice, the first marketing book written by a coach for coaches.
Deborah built a coaching business from scratch at a time when no one knew what coaching was. She converted a 3-year part time coaching business (1998) into a full-time global operation in July 2001, and created a successful practice out of sheer will and a desire to help others succeed both in their personal lives and in the workplace. Deborah took that same determination to loose 30 pounds on Weight Watchers, become a regular at Crossfit classes, and utilize a nutrition-only approach to recover from Lyme Disease.
Deborah is the Lead Instructor for Impact's Health and Wellness Coach Training Program.
