Debbie has been married to Brad since 1985, and they have four daughters. Amanda, Hanna and Maddie are all grown and graduated from college, with Olivia in high school.
After studying journalism in college, she began her adult career as a sports writer for her local paper in California. Debbie and Brad moved to the Los Angeles area where she became a staff writer for James Dobson’s Focus on the Family for eight years. When her own family came along, she gave up her outside-the-home job and became a stay-at-home mom, and eventually homeschooled all four of her daughters.
When God called her family to move to the Orlando area, they found Lifebridge as their church home. Shortly after, Debbie was asked to be on staff as the Preschool Coordinator. It is her joy to love on the preschoolers and their parents, and to lead them into knowing all about Jesus.
Before coming on staff, Debbie and Brad served here with Awana….they have been an Awana family since 1998!
Fun fact about Deb: She loves to travel and has been to all but one of the United States. She has currently traveled on three continents, but give her a chance and she’ll make it to all seven!
