Talks, Training and Support officer
Debbie started her working life as a professional dancer and singer which then led her to teaching Musical Theatre and vocal coaching.
She started her family in 1996 welcoming two boys, Jake & Luke.
In 2001 at the age of 2 ½ Luke was diagnosed with Autism. Which led to her meeting other like-minded parents who founded PACT.
Debbie loves to talk and is passionate about helping other parents, carers and professionals to navigate the world of autism.
She has found true friendships in the adult autism community & has been inspired and educated by them. She will happily spend hours on the phone with parents as there is nothing quite like chatting to someone who has a shared, lived experience.
