Meet Debra

Hi! I’m Debra Levy, the owner of A Life that Fits, LLC. 

I live in Central New Jersey with my wonderful husband of 35+ years, and our children and grandchildren---who I think are pretty awesome too!---live within a couple of hours drive. We're really fortunate to be a close, tight-knit family. I am a huge puzzle fan (especially crosswords and other word puzzles), an avid collector of unique cookie jars, and I love taking photos of the world around me.  

 

Helping other people has always been a passion of mine as well, whether it was “opening up my booth” as a child to help my younger sister resolve her pressing preteen issues (familiar to all of you "Peanuts" fans!), giving a listening ear to friends and family, or partnering with my clients.

 

A big influence on my coaching career has been the many transitions I have made throughout my life. Believe it or not, I’ve moved 26 times! I truly know what it feels like to go through big changes and make major life-decisions while focusing on important details to start anew.

 

My coaching style has also been impacted by the skills I’ve developed while working in several different careers, first as an interior designer in Manhattan & London, then as the owner of a fine arts photography company, followed by over 11 years as a professional organizer. 

 

My life experiences, both the ups and the downs, the many relationships I have (as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend), and the struggles I’ve overcome are what inspired me to become the life coach I am today. My dream is to help others on their own journeys toward becoming the people they want to be and living the lives they want to live!
