Born and raised in Truro, Debbie has spent equal time in the Truro region and the Annapolis Valley – enough to say that both areas are equally comfortable and ‘home’ to her.
A graduate of Acadia University with Arts & Education degrees, Debbie has a diversified work history including jaunts in the education field, the wholesale book industry, as a small business owner/operator, as Executive Director of Alumni Affairs for Acadia, and others but her focus over the last 25 years has been community development. Likely stemming from an extensive community volunteer experience, Debbie’s passion for community development on many levels has involved her with diversified projects throughout the Towns of Truro and Berwick, and the Village of Maitland.
Close to Debbie’s heart are her daughter and son, their spouses and her 5 grandchildren, all of whom live in Valley. One of the most important benefits of coming back to Truro to live and work will be that the move brings her closer to her family, and to her many friends throughout the region.
Debbie’s interests also include working on renovations in older homes. Having completed a number of renovations of her own, and having an appreciation for properties of all sizes, ages and styles, Debbie has always been keenly interested in the real estate market. At this stage in her career, Debbie is excited about finally being able to work in the field and is looking forward to being able to assist others with their home ownership needs.
