Deborah graduated from the University of Houston with a degree from the now-prestigious English department. Although she never planned for a career in television, it came about naturally. Her father was a leading Hollywood cinematographer and her mother loved literature, so Deborah combined both backgrounds and became a broadcast news reporter.
Among her accomplishments -- winning the prestigious Headliners Award for her coverage of the Mexico City earthquake. She and her photographer were the first crew in the world to get stories out of the site of one of the world's most massive natural disasters.
She reported live from Galveston throughout the night when hurricane Alicia hit - even risking a drive off the Galveston seawall at the height of the storm to get the stories back to the station.
In between the breaking news stories that punctuate a reporter's job, Deborah focuses her interest on statewide issues and politics.
Her abiding interests include local history and anything to do with animals.
