Debbi Gardiner McCullough


Originally from New Zealand, Debbi brings the perspective of a newcomer to Wisconsin in her stories. She now lives in Muskego, Wis., with her husband and two sons.

Debbi has reported on social and business trends for 25 years for publications including the Economist, the Financial Times of London and the Guardian. When she’s not writing (or editing), she teaches business communication to online MBA students at UNC Chapel Hill Kenan-Flagler Business School. In 2016, she won a press fellowship to attend the Women Deliver conference in Copenhagen and trained with Reuters on how to report on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

She’s a graduate from the University of California at Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism where she studied print, photography, business and radio. She’s also an artist who loves to illustrate children’s books and paint abstract botanicals on rocks, wood and canvas.
