Chief Development Officer
Debbie joined the staff in 2015 after 8 years in fund development with United Way of Greater Austin and United Way of Tarrant County. Debbie became passionate about the caregiving industry as she experienced the value of excellent caregiving following her mom’s dementia diagnosis and a serious health issue her mother-in-law faced. She enjoys getting to know the clients and making a difference in the lives of those with long term disabilities.
