Debi began her law enforcement career in 1979 as a police dispatcher with Lake St. Louis Police Department. She later enrolled in the Eastern Missouri Police Academy, graduating #1 in her class and earning the designation of NRA Expert Marksman. Debi also studied Criminal Justice at St. Charles Community College, graduating with High Honors and earning the Criminal Justice Scholarship.

She formed her own freelance paralegal company, which is still in operation today.
Although a dedicated professional, Debi places the greatest emphasis on Faith, Family and FUN. For Debi, FUN is spending time with her 7 grandkids and working on her Morgan horse breeding farm, Keepsake Stables. Kids and "Kritters" - together, there is nothing better.
Personal Motto. Those to whom much is given, much is expected.
