Deb Sperling

Deb Sperling graduated from Oberlin College in 2008 with a BA in Politics and no clue what to do with her life. Since then, she has worked as an administrative assistant, a journalist, an editor, a tabloid reporter, a café supervisor, an ESL teacher, a giant dancing box of popcorn, and a transporter of human remains. Deb has lived and traveled extensively in South America, where she recently had two near-death experiences and a life-saving emergency surgery. She is currently working on a memoir linking her encounters with corpses in the funeral industry to the struggles she has faced with her own body.
