Debbie holds a

Debbie feels that
her core values have come from growing up in the Midwest living on an Iowa family farm that has helped contribute to her success in her career as well as personal life. Values like working hard,

understands what it takes to be committed to a cause and brings those Midwestern values to each fundraiser with excitement and pride.
