Team Trainer, Real Estate Affiliate
Organized, Enthusiastic, Energetic, Devoted, Integrity and Passion… just some of the words used to describe Debra when speaking with her colleagues.
Debra is a graduate of Western Illinois University where she received a B.S. degree in Parks & Recreation Administration & Business Management. After graduation, Debra launched her career in the suburbs of Chicago running two swimming pools at a YMCA and quickly moving into managing five park district facilities and 10 park sites. Her career eventually moved towards the social service industry, non-profit sector where her passion was found working with the developmentally disabled and the active older adult community.
Once described as, “No dust under her feet”, Debra then aspired to become a successful Real Estate Developer and Investor and has continued with her high-level commitment to this new career and her real estate education. She also has a very diverse background, which compliments what she brings to the real estate industry.
Debra is currently an Illinois Real Estate Licensed Leasing Agent who actively networks and develops relationships to build a solid foundation of business professionals and clients.
A single mother of two grown children, she has a daughter who is working towards a career in Nursing, and her youngest, a son who is on active duty currently deployed with the U.S. Navy. Debra is an avid outdoors-woman. She has participated in a 4-month mountaineering expedition out west, scuba diving adventures in Honduras, Cozumel & Hawaii, and is a world traveler. She is an outdoor & professional photographer, who also enjoys hiking and going to the beach with her dog Toby.
Her true passion, by far, is riding her Harley Davidson Motorcycle and actively participating in the motorcycle community as a volunteer with Chicagoland Toys for Tots and Honor Flight Chicago, and she is a member of the Wildfire Hog Chapter, Rescue Riders, and the American Veterans Motorcycle Riding Association, who assist Veterans and the military. She also volunteers with “It’s Not Just A Name Children’s Resource Center” (INJANCRC), a center for Missing & Exploited Children.
