Mantra in business #1: Use our belief in our talents, work ethics, common sense, creativity and communication skills to create things so full of positive energy that others cannot help but be attracted to them, benefit from them and esteem them great.
Mantra in business #2: Actions speak louder than words.
Deb grew up in beautiful historic Honesdale, Wayne County, PA and still resides here with her family. She is a proud mother of 3 grown daughters and grandmother to three grandchildren. She spends a lot of time with her amazing family and in volunteering in her community. When she is not with her family she is hiking, perfecting her “new” hobby of oil painting, biking or working-out. It is safe to say that she enjoys doing just about everything.
