Debbie loves using numbers to solve problems – a suitable mindset as the firm’s Finance Director overseeing the financial reporting, technology, and human resources areas of the company. As a teenager, Debbie received valuable training at a family-owned pharmacy in a small town where she paid bills, made deposits, stocked shelves, in addition to being cashier and pharmacy technician.
Debbie’s patient, positive, problem-solving spirit serves the firm well – she serves as Finance Director, serves on the Leadership Team, and leads various strategic initiatives. Her professional career began at Gary-Wheaton Bank where she held various trust operations and retirement plan positions. In 1993 Debbie joined others to form Trust Company of Illinois, and later, its offshoot, TC Wealth Partners, LLC.
Debbie graduated from the University of Illinois with a BS in business administration. She is a member of the CFO Mastermind Group, the Illinois CPA Society and serves on the board of Spectrios Institute for Low Vision in Wheaton. In 2016 she was a finalist for CFO of the Year Award sponsored by FEI (Financial Executives International) Chicago Chapter.
Debbie enjoys starting new ventures and is especially proud of helping her husband begin his own business. Currently, she takes delight in watching her two sons chart their way in their post-college careers. Family time is a deeply valued avocation whether it be a trip to Africa, the Caribbean, or up to Wisconsin for fishing and outdoor fun.
