Musical background

Debbie grew up in Miami, FL, a far cry from her current home in East Lansing, MI. At age 4 she began playing the piano and she had the great fortune to study with Peggy Neighbors Erwin. She attended Interlochen Art Camp (National Music Camp at the time) for five summers. Over the years she also studied flute/piccolo and sang in various choruses and musical theater productions.


Although she dabbled with her mom's guitar briefly in high school, Debbie officially picked up her own in 2013 and began her real musical journey. Now she's studying with Elden Kelly and writing and recording her own music. 


All the rest​

Debbie is a graduate of MIT with both an S.B. and an S.M. in Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering.  She has previously worked for The Jacobson Group in Cambridge, MA and NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA.
