As a daughter in a military family Debbie was born at Ft. Riley, Kansas, and moved to Augusta, Georgia and Oahu, Hawaii, prior to her family returning to its roots in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. After graduating from East Carolina University with a B.S.B.A. in Marketing Debbie wanted to travel so she joined Piedmont Airlines as a flight attendant and was based in Baltimore, Maryland; Charlotte, NC, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
While working as a flight attendant, Debbie met her husband, Bruce, who is now a Captain with American Airlines in Charlotte. They married and moved to Tampa, Florida, where their first daughter was born. Four years later they moved to West Chester, PA, and then finally relocated back to Charlotte, NC. A year later their second daughter was born. For the past 20 years Debbie and her family have enjoyed living in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte. Their daughters are now grown and a Cavapoo named Tucker has joined the family.
While her girls were younger and with a husband that traveled constantly Debbie stayed at home and focused on her children and volunteering at their schools and in the community. As the girls got older Debbie started working at St. John Photography, then for Beverly’s Gourmet Foods and finally for ComForcare Home Care. She did client liaison work handling scheduling, marketing/branding, business development, community philanthropic efforts and coordinated monthly networking events. Over the years, she has devoted a large portion of her time to the activities her girls were involved in ranging from their schools, sports teams, scout troops, dance studios and theatre arts programs. She has also delivered meals for Friendship Trays and volunteered in memory care units with Alzheimer’s patients.
Debbie’s well-rounded background made transitioning into real estate an easy decision. She loves connecting with people and is passionate about helping her clients find their new home as well as acclimate to changes throughout the process of downsizing or relocating. She is compassionate, a great listener, pays attention to details, and has a servant’s heart… a perfect combination for being a Broker/Realtor®.
