Deb has chaperoned countless field trips and has assisted in the end of the year events at both Fry Elementary and Scullen Middle School.

Her involvement at Waubonsie Valley includes Senior Sailabration Committee Chair, Co-Chair of the Warrior Football Club, and she is currently the Director of Concessions for the Waubonsie Valley Boosters.
