Deborah (Deb) Cull holds a degree in Professional and Technical Writing from Saginaw Valley State University (Cum Laude). This is her third year leading the summer writing program at MSU.

As a consultant and freelance writer, Deb serves nonprofit organizations like Creative 360 and Affordable Legal Care in Midland. In her role as marketing director for Creative 360, she has responsibility for the organization’s promotional strategy and tactics, and recently redesigned their website.

Deb uses her writing skills daily to write press releases, website content, social media, biographical information, course descriptions, instructions and is often the ghost writer behind locally published articles and communications. She has also designed and led many writing and personal effectiveness programs.

After a long career at Dow Corning, Deb retired from Corporate Communications in 2010. Prior to moving to Midland, she had a career at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

Deb is currently working on two books. One is a compilation of short stories on unique, eccentric and fascinating women. The other is based on her own experiences, and is designed to provide hope to parents who face the trauma of losing a child. A personal project is a book for her family titled “Growing up Paxson.”

Deb says her life story is enriched beyond measure by her grandchildren and all those who call her Grandma.
