Deborah Southerington
Executive Director of HR Administration
MetroHealth

Deborah strategically plans human resource initiatives to align with MetroHealth’s mission and vision and is professionally fulfilled by leading a high-performing human resources team. Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity & Human Resources Officer Alan K. Nevel said, “Debbie quickly established rapport across the entire HR team to position herself as a trusted coach and mentor.” The best piece of advice she has received is, “No one looks out for you except you,” and she implores others to be their own advocate. Integrating her own borrowed advice, she is always sharpening her skills to be ready for the next growth opportunity. Driven, hard-working, and respectful are the three words she uses to describe herself. Her daughter has her admiration “for her confidence and willingness to push herself outside of her comfort zone.”
