Debora started with the Dermatology department at VRCC in April of 2006. She holds a bachelor’s in Business Administration from CSU, an MBA from Regis University, and received her VTA Certification from PIMA. Her home is shared by a Samoyed named Fenway (yes, he’s a Red Sox fan) and an Alaskan Malamute named Cinder, otherwise known as Wiggles. Ruling the roost are Indigo a.k.a. “Fuzzbutt”, a Siamese mix and Chip, who prefers “Sticks”, a seal Point Siamese. Rounding out the bunch are Reilly, a Flame Point Siamese Mix who the family calls “Cutie Putootie” and Snow-ee, a Domestic Shorthair who goes by “Princess”. Beyond this well loved crew, there are many special friends that now live forever in Deb’s heart.
