Deb discovered her Naples paradise in 1988. She considers herself a Neapolitan, having raised her twin boys in Naples, Florida. Originally from Ohio, she is a UK Wildcat where she earned her BS degree.
Debs first career was in retail with Jacobson’s Stores where she worked her way up the corporate ladder and became the Store General Manager at Jacobsons Waterside Shops, Naples location. When faced with the downturn of the economy in 2002 Jacobson’s declared bankruptcy and despite the over whelming success of the Naples store, Jacobson’s, the company, never recovered. Fortunately the specialty store environment instilled a dedication to the fundamental principles of above and beyond customer service standards. Deb was ready for a career change and began a 16 year journey with VIP Realty Group Inc. She was a member of the management team wearing many hats and also operating as a realtor.
Her favorite hat was that of Relocation Director, where she handled all incoming and outgoing referrals while also operating as the Relocation Director. In January of 2019, Deb gratefully moved her talents to join the JRW family as the Director of Relocation and Web Lead Customer Care. Deb oversees a staff of three. When she is not working she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys traveling, boating, the beach, running and maintains an avid yoga practice.
