Deb is grassroots leader in community health across the state and brings her authentic passion for improving access to resources at the local level to the Alliance board and task force projects.

A social worker by profession, Debbie’s passion is around community organizing, advocacy, and rural issues. Her clear voice and strong resourcefulness offer a valuable perspective representative of many WV communities. As a founding partner, her commitment to the Alliance planning process and her understanding of rural concerns helped shape the foundation of the Alliance in 2014.
