Debbie has been in the insurance industry since 1983 and has spent the years specializing in anything from the Trucking Industry, to Employee Benefits and Non-Profit Organizations. She has spent the last 15 years focusing on the Green Industry; specifically Landscape Contractors, Nurseries, Garden Centers, Irrigation Contractors, and Arboriculture Specialists. For the past 11 years she has been an active member of the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association – serving on the Membership Committee for 7 of those years, and also actively participating in the Women’s Networking Group and Magazine Committees. Debbie also serves as Vice President of Its All About Kids (www.itsallaboutkids.info) – a small non-profit dedicated to assisting families in McHenry County that have children battling Pediatric Cancer. Her hobbies include bowling, reading, gardening, and theatre – in fact Debbie is a season ticket holder for the Mariott Lincolnshire Theatre. Debbie says the best part of her job is the people. She finds that she can almost always find something in common with her customers and loves people in general. One of the reasons she gets along well with others is by focusing on the fact that life is too short to sweat the small stuff, so she’d rather focus on finding solutions and working toward common goals. When Debbie isn’t working she’s happiest spending time with her family here in Illinois and travelling to Arizona to visit her oldest daughter and 2 of her 7 grandchildren. She says Arizona is her favorite place in the world because of her family there, not necessarily because of the place itself so she’s not sure she could ever live there. Debbie’s passion for honesty, kindness, and hard work drives her to build personal relationships with her clients to help fully understand the risks that they face in all aspects of their lives.
