As part of her Master's requirement, Deborah produced an historical 37-minute documentary titled Exhausted Remedies: The Joe Holt Story, about her family’s pioneering effort to integrate Raleigh Public Schools. This documentary won a prestigious CINE Eagle award and was featured in the Visions series on UNC-TV.

She enjoys life in the Triangle as a wife and mother, and when she's not out discovering fun and beautiful places across the state, she likes to visit with local family and friends.
