PERSONAL

  • Originally from a small town in Indiana, Deborah and her husband, Brett, moved to TN in 1999 and were immediately captivated by Nashville's placid beauty, entrepreneurial culture, and deep religious and musical history. Deborah, Brett and their two children love Nashville and are actively involved in their church. When not mediating or consulting with clients or spending time traveling with her family, Deborah enjoys baking fun and unique desserts.

FUN FACTS:

  • Deborah is a singer and enjoys singing on her church's Praise Team.
  • Deborah's pets (dog and cat) are both rescue animals and while a lover of all animals, Deborah is partial to cats. If not for her husband's prohibition, she'd have a house full of felines.
