An accountant by training, Deb has worked in the public, private and not for profit sectors.  From 2005-10, Deb was Head of Policy and Performance at Dorset County Council.  More recently she was Chief Executive of Quartet Community Foundation and now works part-time managing the national grants programme for Neighbourhood Planning funded by Department for Communities and Local Government.

As a local resident, Deb walks, cycles and sails in and around the Jurassic Coast.  She is interested in natural history and concerned about climate change – and looks forward to learning more about both through being involved with the Jurassic Coast Trust.
