Deborah Schwartz, PhD
Director of Content Strategy
Deborah’s parents always used to tell a story about her as a child to make a point about her drive for perfection and share a laugh about her sensitivity. At the dinner table one night when she was six years old, her father tried praising her accomplishments at school by telling her she was very “conscientious.” According to the story, she looked at him in shock, burst out in tears, and ran from the table crying, “He called me conscientious!”
Yes, in her young mind, her father had called her a bad name, and she didn’t like it one bit. However, through the years, as the story was told over and over, Debbie came to appreciate the truth and value in her father’s assessment of her first-grade work ethic.
Today, as she looks back at all she has accomplished and reflects on her work as Director of Content Strategy at Trighton Interactive, she realizes how being conscientious has been and is core to who she is and how she approaches life. From helping her children with school work to maintaining her lawn and home to obtaining her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and teaching writing courses for college students, she has always strived to do her best, to do exceptional work – more than what is expected – and never settle for mediocre or just okay.
Deborah knows she’s in good company at Trighton. Like her, her Trighton colleagues and clients expect exceptional work. They don’t settle for easy or familiar, but rather, reach for the exceptional, the best-in-class, in their website design, digital marketing, content creation and responsiveness to clients.
