Deb joined the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra in January of 2021 as their Development Director and is very excited to work with such a dynamic local organization.
Prior to coming to WCO, she spent 20 years with the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association (WFAA) and retired at the end of June 2020 as Vice President for Development. As a first-generation college student, she understands the power of education and viewed it as a privilege to work on behalf of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She excelled at building authentic relationships with alumni, faculty, donors, and friends and understands the power of philanthropy.
Before her work with WFAA, she was on staff with the Madison Convention and Visitors Bureau and relished her role in bringing tourism to Madison and the surrounding communities.
Deb grew up in Waunakee, WI and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She and her husband, David, have two sons, a daughter-in-law, two grandchildren and Sophie, the family's almost 13-year-old golden doodle. Deb and her husband enjoy exploring local and state parks, reading, and travel.
