CT State Certified Wildlife Rehabilitator and a CT Wildlife Rehabilitators Association (CWRA) Advisory Board Member
A long time Greenwich resident, Deborah spent most of her childhood years at her family home in Westchester and on Longboat Key, Florida, where her family had another residence. Due to the influences of both, the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico and her father’s passion for photography, Deborah has a deep appreciation for nature and developed hobbies as an avid shell collector and a nature photographer. Deborah’s passion for nature and animals was apparent at an early age; in fact, her very first job was working for a Veterinarian.
Currently, Deborah is a Connecticut state certified rehabilitator for orphaned and injured baby mammals and non-migratory birds, and her specialty is fostering baby rabbits until they are old enough for release.
Deborah is a member of the Connecticut Wildlife Rehabilitators Association, and has been appointed to the Advisory Board of the CWRA. She is also member of the National Rehabilitators Association (NWRA). In addition, Deborah has earned her Veterinary Assistant Certification from Norwalk Community College, and volunteers at the New Canaan Nature Center in the animal care area, with birds of prey, mammals and the rabies vector species.
Deborah’s professional career began in retail management, buying and merchandising. Looking for new opportunities, Deborah accepted a temporary position with Time Inc., and she rapidly advanced to Benefits Manager, and was then promoted to Time Warner Corporate in the role of Employee Communications Manager. After 10 years with Time Warner Inc., Deborah’s passion for nature and animals sent her in another direction. She is currently consulting for various clients, as she navigates the next chapter of her career.
