Board of Directors
Deborah’s career as a highly-successful Operations Management and Customer Relations professional includes twenty-five years in government, regional, national and joint venture organizations. Her various positions in the delivery of clinical laboratory services allowed her to acquire a diverse skill set; budgeting, customer service, personnel management, networking, conflict resolution, project management, process implementation, training, leadership, team building and facilitation. Her success was demonstrated by rapid, progressive promotions and the respect of individuals at all levels of the organizations and customers she served. Deborah was recognized by colleagues for unwavering honesty, integrity and communication skills. She delivered optimal customer satisfaction and consistently exceeded objectives. Upon her relocation to Cedaredge in 2004, her positive experiences with employee development and mentoring led her to pursue a coaching certification and shift her professional emphasis to coaching individuals and consulting with small business to build interpersonal skills and achieve objectives. The Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center fulfills a life long goal of applying her art history education to inform the community of the value of the arts and their historical significance.
