Deb’s wellness clinic is located in the art district of downtown Norfolk, Virginia, promoting the “art of wellness” through seminars, her books, and treatment therapies such as hyperbaric oxygen, sensory deprivation tanks and many more science based healing modalities found at the Renova Center – along with a variety of wellness-practitioners.

She has spent over thirty years as a philanthropist, donated to various charities and causes but now dedicates her time, energy, and money raising awareness and funds for treatment and research for Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury for our Veterans, First Responders and Child Abuse. Where does this passion/drive come from? She says, “It’s my mission. I’m the daughter of a Viet Nam Veteran, and I love hanging out with survivors … kindred spirits who don’t know yet – that they are Super Heroes.”
