As a telecommunications systems designer at TEECOM, Deb brings more than 20 years of experience specializing in industrial facilities, hospitals, and data centers. For Deb, the joy of design is in the details. She puts this laser-like focus to work as part of TEECOM’s rockstar Data Center Design team.
Fresh air is where it’s at – even more so when it’s full of the scent of flowers you’ve grown yourself. When Deb steps out into her garden, it’s her own personal therapy space. She used to cultivate veggies, which she canned and froze, but now she puts her dirt to work growing flowers. Her favorite bloom? The daisy.
Despite the fact that it took her eight years to catch her first steelhead, Deb is hooked on salmon fishing. She’ll brave rough waves dressed in her best foul weather gear to reel in a catch. Her husband has better luck than she does, but Deb claims the fish that takes the longest to catch tastes the best – barbecued slowly, with special seasoning.
Deb’s patience with detail comes through in her craftwork, too. She picked up beadworking because of its challenging intricacy, and now enjoys making earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. While she may start with one design idea, she enjoys following the unexpected creative path, and what she ends up with may be very different. Her creativity also finds an outlet in making dreamcatchers, a very personal artform inspired by her Cherokee heritage.
