Growing up with the influence of her father, an artist and teacher of art, Debra acquired a love for the arts which encouraged her to get involved in community art programs as well as coordinating and setup of private art shows. Debra also deeply enjoys and supports local musician performers and the community youth orchestras and bands.

Debra’s experience in writing consists of numerous poems and most recently has expanded to include short stories.

Professionally, after earning her bachelor’s degree in business management at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Massachusetts, Debra went on to earn her law degree from Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, Rhode Island.  Debra focused her talents on a corporate career of more than 25 years as an executive assistant/manager in several different industries, including health insurance, food service, engineering and retail. 

Several years ago, Debra decided to switch gears and spend her time and strengths working with nonprofit organizations and the arts.
