Deborah, her services, and


I hired Deborah to do a Bio card for my Mother who turned 90, and I had my two daughters recite her life story. Deborah added pictures throughout the years of my Mom & recipe for an Egg Cream, because my Mother owned a Stationery Store for over 20 yrs. Everyone loved it including my Mom. I highly recommend Deborah, she went out of her way to make my Mother's 90 th. Birthday Party a HUGE success. Thanks Deborah for making it so special :-) ...Sal P.

Deborah has been a powerful guest instructor in my online classes. I know her to be a superb personal historian, educator and online technology expert. She is creative, caring and conscientious whether she's (1) teaching a life story writing group, (2) guiding online students on how to design and use social media sites for marketing a business or (3) providing one-on-one help for people who want to preserve their life stories in books or videos. I highly recommend Deborah's excellent online classes and services.

Deborah provides a unique and fantastic service for clients. I would recommend Deborah to anyone, as all have a story to tell, especially seniors. She demonstrates patience and compassion as she helps the client tell their story that ultimately becomes a real masterpiece!

Deborah is one of the greatest court reporter mentors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is very detailed, has tremendous knowledge of a variety of subjects, always works hard and very reliable. She is also very easy to get along with and I know that I can always rely on her if needed. I am glad to have met Deborah A. Perham. She is without a doubt the best court reporter mentor out there!! I have learned an awful lot from her....she knows her stuff!!!  Adina King (from Illinois)


Dear Deb, 

     I learned so much from the presentation you gave last week. You are a spring of information and your excitement is contagious. 

I can't believe how much you have done with your social media contacts in such a short time. It is a real incentive for me.

    Thank you!

Hi Deb.  I thought I knew plenty about social media, until I took your class. You taught us simple tricks for improving our reach and getting the attention of potential clients. I'll be taking more of your classes soon. Thanks so much.
