Deb's family moved to the Laurelhurst neighborhood in Portland in 1965 - she was ten years old. They had a beautiful Sheltie named Princess. Pet Samaritan was the Veterinary Clinic they chose for her care. Ever since, every animal that has been a part of her life has received excellent care here; and there have been many. Currently Deb and her husband Jeff have two pets, their cat named Cricket (who was found twelve years ago and brought to Pet Sam when it was a few days old...and Becca, a rescue dog they've had for ten years.)
For thirty five years Deb worked in restaurants. Serving for the most part, but also filling in as a cook or baker when needed. In 2009 Deb began working in an assisted living center, running a coffee shop there and filling in as needed in the kitchen, or at the front desk. For the last five years, Deb has been babysitting her granddaughters...and a handful of other little ones. This year, the granddaughters will be in school all day....and it's time for "Ma" to move on to a new position with Pet Samaritan Clinic - helping out in anyway she can for her daughter the Hospital Manager. Come in and meet Deb… her warm smile and just genuine happiness for life and animals can be most comforting on the roughest of days.
