Rebecca Deurlein

Rebecca Deurlein believes everything is interesting, and she loves finding the story everywhere she goes. Her passion is discovering people and places that have gone unnoticed and bringing light to what makes them unique. She has spent decades exploring topics, delving into research, and discovering the nuances within experiences. Rebecca began her career in public relations and advertising and quickly learned how to recognize selling points and seize opportunities. Her clients have included major hospitals, tech companies, school systems, personalities, businesses, commercial properties, travel destinations, hotels, restaurants, and wineries.

Rebecca also worked as a high school English and journalism teacher, where she had no choice but to become a grammar and language expert. As a daily editor of multiple essays, she parlayed those skills into editing a local Houston magazine. At the same time, she earned both a master’s and doctorate degree in educational leadership. Considered a teenager and parenting expert, she authored the internationally acclaimed book "Teenagers 101: What a top teacher wishes you knew about helping your kid succeed" (Harper Collins). She has appeared on TV, podcasts, and in multiple publications and blogs.

Today, Rebecca focuses on her greatest passion — travel — along with food and beverage, wellness, lifestyle, health, and self-care. She has brought attention and tourism to every place she has visited through engaging stories. Her priority is representing clients with positivity, professionalism, and enthusiasm.
