How Many Years a CREWNY Member?
6 months

Fun Fact:
I am extremely afraid of heights but have found a fun hobby in flying trapeze. Nothing like conquering your fears head on.

What have you learned about yourself over the past year?
This past year has to been life altering for everyone. The biggest thing I learned about myself was where and what to place greater importance on – family, friends, health, and peace of mind.

What advice would you give your younger self?
I would tell young Deborah that everything truly does happen for a reason (I wasn’t always a fan of listening to my mom on this). I would also tell her that the things that make you different and make you feel separate from the crowd are the gifts that add to your unique spirit and presence.

What did you want to be growing up?
Growing up I always wanted to be a lawyer. I first learned about civil engineering after enrolling into a summer engineering camp. Deciding to study engineering in school is what led me down the path towards commercial real estate. No regrets since!
