Deborah has been an active Board Member and the Treasurer for Just for Kids since its inception. Her interest in advocating for a better quality of life for those with special needs began with the birth of her son in 1995. Terms like “Neonatal Seizures of an Unknown Ideology”, “Developmental Delays” and “Autism” issued in an unexpected journey. Her experience with bookkeeping, office, medical records management and graphic design provided her the skills and background to support Just for Kids.

Deborah enjoys working as a family historian and researching Utah history and has presented her findings to the Utah State Historical Society. She enjoys spending time with family camping, hiking, skiing and 4 wheeling. Deborah with her husband, Larry, have two sons, one married, a daughter and three grandchildren.
