Debra Ball has been a television host, voice talent and travel expert for over 20 years. Travel has always been her passion and she has enjoyed exploring 29 countries throughout the world sharing her adventures with thousands of followers on TV and online.
From the age of seven Debra has been engaging with audiences. Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, she first performed as a dancer, then a musician, and began public speaking engagements by the age of 16. Her enthusiasm for performing continued to grow as she auditioned and was cast in six consecutive musical theater productions by Puget Sound Musical Theater—an experience that later fueled her desire to study acting and pursue a career in television.
Recognizing that Seattle didn’t offer the television opportunities she sought, Debra graduated from Pima Medical Institute and continued a career as a certified orthodontic assistant and treatment coordinator for over 10 years. As fate had it, a move to Florida surprisingly opened the door of opportunity in television she had desired for so long.
Upon finding her niche as a television host, corporate spokesperson and voice actress, it’s rare to find Debra not involved in the career she is so passionate about. You may have seen her as a special guest expert on HSN, hosting the Emmy Award winning TV magazine show New Florida on PBS, hosting the Florida Home Show on UPN and FOX, or co-hosting StihlTV on Fox Sports, CNBC and the Outdoor Chanel.
She has been an on-camera host and corporate spokesperson for such clients as Alcoa, Alamo/National Rental Car, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, General Motors, City Furniture, Holland America Cruise Lines, Citibank and FPL among others. She has also enjoyed hosting such TV shows as 20 Something, Healthy Living, Today’s Home, and Family Focus.
Debra maintains an active modeling career. Recent credits include print, television, radio voiceover and catalog work for such clients as Macy’s, Visa, Disney, AT&T, Citibank, George Forman products and Avalon Resorts.
She still manages to find time in her busy schedule to enjoy some of her favorite pastimes like travel, golf, boating, cooking, hiking, volunteering and spending time with family and friends.
