A native Austinite, Ms. Debra first found us as a parent when looking for a two-day program for her now teenage son. Debra later joined the staff as a teacher, and then as Director in January 2009. Debra earned a BA in Theology from Texas Lutheran University and began Masters level courses in Counseling and Guidance at Texas State University. Prior to working with us, Debra was the Director of Youth Ministry at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church and then a full-time Mom! As our Director, enrollment has grown while the quality of care has been enhanced. She emphasizes love, enrichment, and safety. She also values our staff and is always happy to acknowledge their hard work and dedication. The St. Mark Church community is grateful for her leadership and entrusts her with the continued success of our program. She serves our school community with joy and looks forward to coming to “work” each day! Debra is married and has three sons.
