Debbie knows expat life very well. Her father was in the air force, so as a child she moved around a lot. Her most colourful memories come from the four years spent in Germany. After moving back to Canada, her family lived in Edmonton, Alberta, where Debbie graduated from N.A.I.T. with a Medical Laboratory Technologist diploma.
As an adult, Debbie worked in the United Arab Emirates and volunteered in Ghana in her career in healthcare.
Debbie is married and currently resides in a small town in southern Alberta with her husband, two dogs, and two cats, actively planning their retirement in Ecuador.
