Debbie completed her occupational therapy degree in 1993 at Loma Linda University in California. During her 29 years of experience, she has primarily served the pediatric population ranging from mild to severe needs (including outpatient clinic, school system, and early intervention settings), with some overlap in acute adult, outpatient adult, home health, and hand clinic settings.

She has been married to her wonderful husband for over 25 years, has two daughters that keep her busy and one rescue dog to keep her walking. She loves spending time with her family, getting out in nature, and decorating.
