Debbie was our sponsor coordinator for several years, soliciting and maintaining sponsor relationships for our large, free public art festivals which would not continue to exist without sponsors. She is extremely well-connected in San Diego and beyond, and she was successful in bringing us sponsors from a wide variety of company types, from automotive, to financial institutions and consumer products. Her work ethic is impeccable and she is such a likeable and high-energy person…those who come into contact with her are immediately bonded with her. Her warm and engaging personality are wonderful aspects to Debbie, and I would highly recommend Debbie for just about any pursuit that involves connecting with people and businesses.

Debbie helped us put together and execute an effective grassroots campaign to connect with key influencers in the Kilauea neighborhood of Kauai, Hawaii, and ultimately won approval from the planning commission for our shopping center project, Kilauea Lighthouse Village. This is an extremely close-knit community, and we needed to work with someone who understood the dynamics and concerns of their group.
I had the opportunity to work with Debbie while serving as President of the San Diego Building Industry Association. She did an excellent job fund raising and producing the Tour d’ Elegance event for the BIA. The Tour event was highly complex and involved coordinating multiple custom home builders, numerous vendors, sponsors and thousands of visitors. Her enthusiasm and high attention to detail resulted in the most profitable Tour event the Association had produced.
Debbie has facilitated meetings and introductions that have been instrumental in securing approximately half a million dollars of investment capital we’ve raised for a growing life science firm.
Debbie has been versatile, creative and extremely effective in helping us raise funds to build a new hospital. She is a real pro when it comes to event-driven donor cultivation. She has brought us valuable new contacts and helped us strengthen our relationships with our existing supporters.

We really wanted to increase traffic at our retail center and raise awareness of all the diverse offerings we have. Debbie suggested and helped to coordinate a Business After Hours with the Chamber of Commerce to take place at our property, Kong Lung Market Center. We had 100 guests, and Debbie was absolutely instrumental in pushing that attendance number so high.
