Debbie chose to donate $500 to the Red Cross; this nonprofit’s mission is to alleviate the pain of those who have faced crises through mobilizing volunteers. Debbie chose this organization because of the recent earthquake in Haiti. “It’s big on my heart. I want to make sure my donation goes toward helping people in need,” she said when talking about the Red Cross’ ability to help those all across the world.
Debbie was born in Outer Banks, North Carolina, where she owned her own real estate company and eventually sold the company before joining Ryan Homes and the building industry in Virginia. Her move to Florida was a recent one when she transferred with NVR Mortgage in February of 2020. She now happily resides in Okeechobee, where she and her fiancé, John, enjoy fishing and can almost always be found on their boat during the weekends. Debbie is a proud mother and grandmother; her three adult children currently live in Virginia or North Carolina. She looks forward to her daughter’s family of three energetic boys to move down to Florida later this year.
