Debbie joined the Four Seasons team in February of 2021 as Administrative Assistant and Database Coordinator. She spent the majority of her life moving between the family ‘farm’ in central Pennsylvania where she cared for her mother during times of change, and the San Francisco Bay Area, where she first worked in the air freight industry, and then with a large Silicon Valley church and small Japanese-American church. Following the completion of her BS in Organizational Leadership at Penn State in 2007, she took a position with a large CCRC back in the Bay Area. Here she found a passion for the continuing care community and was a 2014 Leading Age Emerge Fellow. Following this she spent the last 6 years at home caring for her mother; then, with her passing in 2020, she joined friends in Asheville, where she is excited to settle and spend time hiking and running the local trails, catching up on her reading, joining local community and church choirs, and getting a kitten!
