Debbie moved to Arizona in the mid-1980s and began teaching music to K-8 students around the Valley of the Sun, eventually ending up in Fountain Hills. She has been teaching music locally for over 16 years to over 200 children a week and currently teaches music at the Fountain Hills Charter School.

She also plays and sings for all the various Veteran’s events and services. She has co-chaired and chaired the annual Choirfest, sings and plays for the elderly at Fountain View Village, and organizes musical events for kids at the Community Center.
Debbie says, “I absolutely love working with younger children. I love to impress the love of music in a natural way, and I try to make sure they continue to love and seek musical education throughout their lives.” She sang in adult choirs since she was 14 and made choral music her major emphasis through college.
Outside of music, Debbie is a member of Noon Kiwanis, served on various committees for the River of Time Museum, and served on the Save Our Town Committee. She has held various positions on the Board of the Fountain Hills Republican Club. When she was president, it was recognized twice by the Arizona GOP Chair and Governor as the “Best Republican Club or Organization” in the state.
