Debbie Melanson-Hebert n.d.



Some people who have been influenced by Debbie, either by taking programs or working with her one-on-one, have called her "the Moncton Oprah" after Oprah Winfrey;  "Dr Phyllis" after Dr Phil McGraw; and "mini Louise" after Louise L Hay.  Debbie calls herself "an EMPOWERMENT SPECIALIST" as well as a "CHANGE AGENT".



Debbie's life work is the art of self-development and spiritual growth through daily practice.  Guided by her devotion to her personal values of authenticity, respect, empathy, integrity, gratitude and mindfulness, Debbie Melanson-Hebert is a motivational and inspirational speaker who is driven by a passion to assist others who seek deeper self-knowledge. Debbie creates and facilitates programs and workshops with a goal to empower others in living their best life. She provides tools for change, including strategies for reorganizing life priorities and ultimately sets her clients on a path to uncover their full potential.

Her insatiable hunger for wisdom and spiritual fulfillment led her to pursue a License as a certified “HEAL YOUR LIFE® ” Teacher and Life Coach; Certified Grief Recovery® Specialist; a Reiki Master; Foot Reflexology Practitioner; and a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. Striving to be a catalyst of positive change even further in her community, in 2010, Debbie founded her own business (private practice), MOVin’ FORWARD: Facilitating & Presentations, where she develops and facilitates empowerment programs for various groups of adults.

On September 15, 2017 she was honored to receive the Senate of Canada  Sesquicentennial (150)  Medal for her extraordinary dedication to her community.Please feel free to watch the entire presentation (see the link below) honoring the "unsung heroes" of our community. You will find her acceptance of this award at the 43min mark of the video.


Debbie operates her private practice in Moncton, New Brunswick.  She worked at Support to Single Parents Inc. from 1982 until it's closure in June 2016. She has been teaching adults in both official languages since 1981.

She is happily married and is blessed to have a blended family of 5 amazing adult children and 11 adorable grandchildren. In her spare time she enjoys: reading for leisure and learning; watching movies; traveling and cooking.
