Debra began her tenure at the IIN in 2002 as Business Manager. Today, as Assistant Director, she helps direct daily operations, finances, and program development and implementation for the Institute and its affiliated centers. Deb’s attention to detail, enthusiasm, and resourcefulness have helped make her a vital member of the team. She holds a B.S. in advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and brought 25 years of experience in the financial and banking industry to her position. In her spare time, Deb thrives on being active in the outdoors (hike, ski and bike) but also loves to settle in for a quiet afternoon with a good book. She and her husband Peter have two daughters (Kate & Claire, who to Deb's delight are both in Chicago) and the newest member of the family, Bella – an 18 month old Portuguese water dog.
