Deborah Moskovitch is a Divorce Coach supporting people in having a positive outcome from their divorce, for a happier and healthier future. She understands divorce because she has been through her own seven-year struggle that ended more than 10 years ago. That process inspired Deborah to hunt for healthier, less painful ways to manage the divorce process and share it with others. Since then, she researched and shared proven strategies and advice from 100 of North American's top divorce lawyers, financial advisors, counselors and other experts in her best selling resource book, The Smart Divorce, now in its third printing.

Responding to the demand for "neutral" support, Deborah founded her company, The Smart Divorce® to provide informative resources, support coaching and powerful education tools to empower and free people during this difficult time. As a Divorce Coach, she provides private one-on-one coaching,events, and other unique divorce support services for individuals and for organizations across North America. The Smart Divorce® is your one stop shop for cost effective divorce support. She's in your camp!

Deborah's goal is always to help you get through your divorce smarter with your family, your finances and your sanity intact, while saving you time and money. She remains curious and questioning, as an online radio host, of the popular Radio Show, The Smart Divorce on Divorce Source Radio, and as a regular columnist for the Huffington Post and More Magazine. In addition, she is a public speaker and media contact who is in frequent demand. She has been interviewed on more that 40 television and radio shows, and is widely quoted in Canadian and U.S. print and online publications.

Deborah holds degrees in economics and business administration from Toronto’s York University. As an advocate for giving back, she is active in her local Canadian and United States communities where she is:
