  • Debbie loves to sing and is a respected local soloist.
  • Originally from Visalia, Debbie remembers many childhood Central Coast vacations. She is now thrilled to live here.

Debbie is the youngest of seven children, five of whom are brothers, and so it’s no wonder that she knows how to hold her own and transform a client’s challenges into opportunities. “I find that helping clients understand their financial health increases their business profitability,” she says. Hired by Glenn Burdette straight from Cal Poly, Debbie has built an extensive background in S-Corp and Partnership tax preparation, particularly in the healthcare and service industries.

In her personal life, Debbie is passionate about Music, Theater, Travel and Family (not necessarily in that order). Music and Theater have been an important part of her life since early childhood. She sings with San Luis Obispo Master Chorale and with the Choir and small ensemble at San Luis Obispo’s Old Mission Church. To satisfy her desire to serve the community and promote local live professional theater, she also serves on the Board of Directors for SLO REP. She and her husband love to travel and experience new cultures around the world as well as traveling just across the country to visit their grown children.

Originally from Visalia, Debbie has lived in Nashville, Tennessee and the southern California area before settling in San Luis Obispo. “Our goal was always to get closer to family to make it easier for them to visit us”, says Debbie, “We don’t have any difficulty convincing them to make the drive from Visalia to the central coast.”
