Reinvention Conversation from the Front Porch: Deborah Kevin, Chief Inspiration Officer, Our Tales UnTold
April 20, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 8:40 pm EDT
At 17 years old, Deborah became emancipated and was the first person in her family to attend college. She studied special education, having a developed an interest in autism. Little did she know that 29 years later that interest would take on a special meaning. After graduation, Deborah held numerous positions in the corporate world including, accountant, a certified corporate problem-solver, a corporate trainer. However, she left that world behind in 2010 to help her son, who has autism, and became an autism activist. Deborah’s reinvention journey did not stop there though. She went on to write a book, start a communications business, and most recently, found her true passion in writing down other people’s family stories. She created Our Tales Untold to help family members record their stories.

Deborah Kevin, launched her business, Our Tales Untold, after working for over 20 as problem solver. Wherever she worked, people loved to tell her their stories — and she loved to listen. A lifelong learner, Debby’s can-do attitude resulted in her amassing an impressive array of skills: website design, auditor, treasurer, communication planning, writing, editing, change management, project management. These skills came in handy when her son was diagnosed with autism and she stopped working outside the home in 2010. She set about researching and designing a holistic program to meet him where he was and help him succeed, all while setting the tone that he was perfect just as he was. During this time, Deborah went back to school, determined to fulfill a lifelong dream of writing a novel. She graduated from Stanford in 2014, and her novel, Finding Grace, is under revision. But it wasn’t until a mentor asked her what she would do for free that she realized all her life she’d loved writing, editing, and interviewing. That’s how Our Tales Untold, her personal historian business, came to be.REGISTER NOW TO JOIN THIS FREE WEBCAST >>>
