Debbie was born on a dairy farm in Wineham, West Sussex.
She met her husband at Plumpton College and they have two grown up daughters, Victoria and Amy.
Debbie worked for NMR for over 10 years as Area Field Manager covering Sussex, Kent and the Isle of Wight. After leaving NMR, Debbie divided her week between working at Reading University in the Dairy Research Centre and on farms around Sussex entering data onto Interherd. At home they have cut down on their sheep flock and run just 40 ewes.
In her free time Debbie is on the Committee for West Grinstead and District Ploughing Match Association. She loves gardening, re-upholstering old furniture and in the winter enjoys country pursuits.
