Debbie was born in rural Newfoundland where she grew up yearning to be a soldier; and she was for 11 years before vision loss interrupted a career she loved. It did take her out of the game for a while but she got back up - resilience is part of her DNA. When she graduated from university at age 45, she knew that knowledge was key to a better life. Entrepreneurship came later when finding a job became a challenge with a disability. Having learned so many lessons at the school of hard knocks, she was determined to help others have an easier path to growing a business.
And she was a mechanic too :)
