Debra spent childhood summers at her family’s Downeast Maine camp, to which she returned regularly as an adult. The opportunity to relocate to Maine arose unexpectedly in 2002 when she took an interim position at College of the Atlantic, fulfilling a life-long dream of living in Maine.
Debra studied graphic art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and many years later completed her BA in Child Development at Antioch University-Los Angeles. Debra has traveled in Central America, Europe, and the United States; she is interested in cultural similarities and diversity. She enjoys swimming, hiking, and cross-country skiing in the beauty of Acadia National Park. She is a coach at Vaulters of Mount Desert Island, an equestrian vaulting team, where she enjoys coaching youth in gymnastics as well as training the horses.
Debra worked as a real estate agent in Los Angeles for 15 years and as a marketing coordinator in an MDI real estate office for 4 years. As part of the Knowles Company rentals team, her goal is to provide excellent service!
