Debra has been a Registered Nurse for 29 years and holds a bachelor's in nursing and a master's in nursing education and administration. Currently Debra is an Assistant Dean of Faculty and Professor at Chamberlain University.
She is passionate about education and ensuring each child is a well rounded graduate who has the best chance to succeed whether in college, a trade, or a job. Coming from the university setting, Debra sees how valuable a quality, well rounded K-12 education is for students, especially nursing students, to be successful.
Debra is an elected Will County Regional School Board Trustee and wants to bring her talents and ideas to the Valley View School District Board to make a more direct and impactful difference in the education and lives of our Valley View Students, Parents, and Faculty. She believes that K-12 schools are essential to helping children develop to be the best they can be and to successfully transition to adult life.
