Debbie owned and operated a home-based business for 25 years performing outsourced medical transcription for independent physician practices in the Portland area using digital equipment. Debbie's anchor client was a four physician practice which she serviced for 25 years while other physician practices came and went. Due to the adoption of electronic health records, outsourced medical transcription services were no longer required. Since 2012, Debbie has been a retail sales associate for JC Penney, gaining valuable experience working with retail customers. Debbie enjoys being part of Club Pilates and being mom to two adult daughters and their husbands as well as being Nana to one amazing grandson.
