Debra Toppeta

Debra Toppeta is the Publisher of Woman Around Town. After graduating from Cornell University, Debra began her career in financial services where she ultimately became the lead technical and motivational speechwriter for the members of the Executive Suite, including the CEO and several board members. Debra left financial services to attend Brooklyn Law School, graduating magna cum laude, and immediately joined a large white-shoe law firm in Manhattan where she spent eight long years working in mergers and acquisitions. Committed to public service, Debra has served on the board of a special education institution in Manhattan, reads to the blind, and with her husband, has created several foundations to help underprivileged teens afford college. While she enjoys writing, Debra is happy to leave that to the experts and prefers to work in the “back office” of Woman Around Town getting the word out about the website, supporting all of the talented writers and keeping things legal.
