Debbie Zimmermann, Partner, Senior Consultant & Wellness Coach

Every day business leaders have the opportunity to create great experiences for their employees. And a great employee experience will ultimately impact customer experiences. As your Coach and Strategic Human Resource Business Partner, I am passionate about helping business leaders align Human Resource programs to create world class experiences for their employees. 

Key areas where I can add value to your organization include helping you create a culture of diversity and inclusion, developing a framework to have meaningful performance conversations with your employees, facilitating employee training and development, executive and leadership coaching, creating a robust on-boarding experience, and building wellness programs.

My career as a Human Resources professional began 25 years ago and includes 10 years as a Global Senior HR Business Partner. I have experience working for start-ups and large corporations in San Francisco, CA and Portsmouth, NH. I’ve been fortunate to work in diverse industries such as Software, Biotechnology and Insurance Services. I graduated from the University of NH with a B.S. in Business Administration and minor in Psychology. I also completed my Masters Certificate in the Human Resource field from Southern NH University.  I’m a trained facilitator in a number of leadership programs (managing low performance, change management, leading culture change) and team building assessments such MBTI and 360 feedback tools. 

I was recently hired as an Adjunct Professor for the University of New Hampshire for the Human Resources Certificate Program. In this role, I will be leading classes in a variety of HR programs to help HR colleagues develop in their career. In addition, I am a Nationally certified Group Fitness Instructor. For the past 30 years, I have been designing and teaching group exercise classes for a broad range of fitness levels. I also have experience as a personal trainer and wellness coach. 

I am active business community member with Seacoast Human Resources Associate (SHRA) through SHRM, and the local Chamber of Commerce Associations in Portsmouth and Dover NH. I am the former President and Vice President of the Marin Human Resource Association in San Francisco.  Visit My LinkedIn Profile
