Deborah Cotter

Deb Cotter is a disability rights advocate.

Deborah joined WIT’s improv program in 2015 and will likely need to return to WIT’s Improv Level I class since it’s a fun,  effective and inexpensive form of rehab (physical, occupational and speech therapy combined with paying good attention to your partner/s) — all of which is wicked hard when you can’t see, hear, or feel everything around you.

A long-time disability advocate, Deb enjoys using humor to teach “normies” about negotiating life with disability. In this vein, she hopes that health professionals would prescribe improv classes to their patients so that folks could better adjust after life-changing medical issues.

Favorite catchphrase she'd like to spread
Embrace the weirdness (of life). “Yes And” your life!
