Senior Manager

Debby is skilled at managing complex problems. A good thing, as she wears many hats as a senior manager. A professional in the field since 1998, she has a wealth of experience in tax, business planning, and legal fields.

Known as an authentic individual, Debby takes an outcome-driven approach to helping business owners understand their company value, how it fits with their estate and financial plans, and how to navigate eventual transitions. She combines her vast expertise with an emphasis on listening to deliver value to her clients.

Debby resides in Vermillion, South Dakota, with her husband, Kyle and their three children. She loves that the area has a small-town environment with the added energy of being a university town. Debby enjoys listening to Spotify and says it keeps her company when she works from home. When she isn’t at the office, she can be found cheering on her favorite team, the University of South Dakota Coyotes.
