Debbie Peri
Professional Development Consultant
for Results Accountants' Systems

Growing up in Northern California and Scottsdale, Arizona, I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I returned to Scottsdale where I earned my C.P.A. while working for Ernst and Young in mainly audit and consulting. My clients included emerging growth companies and public corporations such as American Express, where I spent 8 months working as a consultant with their reengineering team.

After 2 years of saving my overtime pay, I decided to pursue
my dream of traveling overseas for as long as my savings would allow. One year later, after living and studying in Montpellier, France and traveling throughout Western Europe, I returned to the U.S. I joined American Express' business travel division as a Project Leader, overseeing the performance based incentive plan for over 10,000 employees, before relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area and coming to Results.

As a Professional Development Consultant with RAS, I've
worked with over 100 Boot Camp firms, helping them to redesign the way they work with their teams and their clients. By implementing the Boot Camp strategies, they're empowered to shape their practices into the entrepreneurial experience they envisioned when they initially went into practice. A vital part of this process is finding and retaining good people to help their practices grow.
