Debbie started her career as a licensed agent 30 years ago in California where she worked at Amwest Surety Insurance Company as a Senior Contract Bond Underwriter managing accounts for large contractors in the construction industry. She was soon elevated to become one of the lead underwriters of the Small Business Administration (SBA) Specialty Bond Program within the company. Following a successful career on the company side of the industry, she branched off to start her own agency, Charter Bonding & Insurance Services, and within her first year in business obtained status as a certified Women Owned Business (WBE) which allowed her government clients to meet the mandated contract requirements that had recently been set forth.
When Debbie moved to Alabama, she obtained a position with a Fortune 500 General Contractor, Brasfield & Gorrie, Inc., as a Subcontractors Document Control Coordinator reviewing insurance, bonds, safety, and legal documents for Contract and Osha compliance prior to project start up. Thereafter, she worked for independent agencies focusing on mid to large complex commercial accounts in a variety of industries, including construction, social service and property management to name a few. In 2019 Debbie joined Harmon Dennis Bradshaw as a Commercial Lines Account Manager where she draws upon her broad knowledge and expertise daily to provide exemplary service to her clients.
Debbie has achieved the Certified Insurance Service Representative Designation (CISR) as well as the Certified Professional Insurance Agents Designation (CPIA). Debbie previously served on the board of directors for the National Association of Women in Construction CA Chapter and is an active member of the Alabama Chapter to this day.
