Children’s Volunteer Services presents: Red-Vested Rockstar!
1. Why she ROCKS?!
Debra is a volunteer on the St. Paul Campus; she was formerly a float volunteer, and currently serves as a peri-operative escort in our surgery department. She is energetic and fun, and truly lights up the room! Debra serves as a trainer for new volunteers, passing on her knowledge and expertise. See why she got into volunteering at Children’s:
“I got into volunteering with hopes to ease the anxiety for children & their families during a stressful time. Spread a little joy!”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“I love spending time with my husband, family, and friends. I also enjoy biking, hiking, yoga, and walking… staying active!”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“I have a stepson, daughter-in-law and five grandchildren!”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“My candy bar would be made with raw pecans, dates, figs, sunflower seeds and dark chocolate. I would name it Healthy Me.”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story.
“I spent many hours rocking and holding an infant boy. Every week I went to his unit to rock & talk with him, we really had a connection. When he smiled at me, my heart sang!”
Thank you for your bright, positive energy, and true commitment to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota!
