Deborah is married with three kids, ages 12, 10, and 7, who keep her very busy!  Her family likes to play games, bike, and spend time at the beach.  Whenever she finds a free minute (which is pretty rare), she enjoys reading, playing tennis, and spending time with friends.

"I have always felt that each member of the UNC Health Care team is working toward the same goal:  to provide the highest quality care to the people of North Carolina," says Deborah. "I'm proud to be a part of this amazing team!"
