Growing up in a military family, Debbie moved around the country throughout her childhood. But, as a fourth-grader, she made a declaration that she would live in Vermont when she grew up. Many years later she is very happy to be putting down roots here in Vermont and working for Audubon. Debbie joins the education team with a Master of Science in Environmental Science from Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs. She gained experience in outdoor education working as an educator, naturalist, and camp program manager at environmental education camps in Alaska and California. She now lives in Montpelier where she is excited to see and experience all that Vermont has to offer during each of its seasons.
