After a degree from UNA, Debe started her career in Huntsville, Alabama. Her first kitchen was published within the first year and at that point she was hooked on kitchen and bath design. She then transferred to Houston, Texas where she honed her craft of design by working with several hundred homeowners and high end builders. It was here that she won several awards for her kitchens and was published in many magazines. From here she went on to international design work in Greece, England, Germany and even a home in Africa. She then moved back to her home town of Florence, Alabama and opened her own kitchen and bath studio.
Debe currently serves in the NKBA, National Kitchen and Bath Association, as an executive officer. She has been active with her governing association since 1993 and has earned her CKD Certified Kitchen Designer (1993), CBD Certified Bath Designer (2006) and CMKBD Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer (2009). She also serves on the Advisory Council for UNA HES Department and Sheffied High School HES Department. She believes in volunteer leadership, ethical business practices, and serving your community.
