“From the short time I had the pleasure of working with Debbie, I knew right away she was authentic. She has a very calming presence and the biggest heart. She not only believed in taking care of family and community (even other communities that asked for her help), but truly lived it. Debbie is a doer and puts all she has into whatever she is involved with or leading. She’s definitely a role model and leader.”
Mesha Davis, Arizona Foundation for Women.
“Debbie is one of the most clear and strategic leaders I know. I have seen her work in many different environments: with youth, in organizations, with policy makers and with both native and non-native community members. In each setting, she brings the same consistency, effectiveness and true passion. She is a true mentor, and a joy to work with.”
