Introducing Debbie, a mother who never stops learning and a nominee in Saving Mothers’ “Mother of the Year” contest.
Tell us about her: My mom is spunky, smart and nurturing. She grew up in Iowa. Her dad was a farmer and she was the captain of the cheerleaders. She worked very hard in school and studied math for her undergraduate degree. In her twenties, she moved to California to start working in tech. She was one of the first female engineers in Silicon Valley! While me and my siblings were growing up, she worked part-time and volunteered doing website development and database management. After we all left for college, she went back on the job market and found an amazing job in a tech research lab at Stanford. I’m so proud of her because she’s so amazing and never stops learning!
