Sexual Abuse Peer Advocate
Deborah originally comes from the East coast, where she started her training in Pediatrics as a Medical Assistant. After moving to New Mexico, Deborah decided to tap into other genres of medicine. She worked in OB/GYN for almost 4 years. Wanting to serve the underserved, she became an Advanced EMT in NW New Mexico.
It was in the field of EMS where Deborah realized that if she was going to be successful in really helping others, she would, herself, need to address her past, and what drew her into the field of helping. And that’s exactly what she did!
After being paired with a counselor who was the perfect match, and going through a program that absolutely fit, she found her courage to confront her abuser! Many years of weight was lifted, and a new mission began!
