Director of Donor Relations
Deborah's experience and talent in marketing and communications are at the heart of everything she has done in her career including founding two successful nonprofit organizations, launching and running a thriving writing and consulting business and creating a fun side-hustle of photographing dogs, travel, surfing, and life's most important moments.
Deborah's nonprofit experience includes being the Founder of Girls on the Run of NE Florida, a nonprofit organization that has taught thousands of girls over the course of the last 15 years how to live healthy lifestyles filled with self-esteem and positive choices. She then founded a second nonprofit -- Marathon High. This is also a regional program in NE Florida that serves at-risk high school students and trains them to complete a challenging 13.1-mile half-marathon while also learning important life lessons. With both organizations, Deborah excelled at fundraising, sponsorship development, marketing, and public relations.
On the for-profit side of things, Deborah has worked with local, regional, and national clients on writing, marketing, and consulting. Her journalism has included work with AOL, Huffington Post, and numerous other online media outlets. Deborah's corporate writing and marketing has included work with Fortune 500 to small start-ups on website development, sales and PR campaigns, and social media development.
On a personal note, Deborah has been a competitive runner for 20 years, completed 14 marathons (including qualifying for and completing the Boston Marathon) and numerous triathlons. She has been married to her husband for 26 years and they have two amazing sons -- one is a successful entrepreneur and the other is a proud United States Marine.
