Debbie was born and raised in the Salt Lake City area. In her youth, you could find her outside adventuring or riding horses. In 1999, she fell in love with the man of her dreams and his amazing daughter. While dedicating herself to her spouse and step-daughter, she completed a degree in business accounting in 2002. She has been working in the field of accounting ever since.
In 2013, Debbie and her husband moved to sunny St. George. Shortly after moving to St. George, she had a “sealed by fate” moment when she was introduced to Gina Brown (Paula Temple’s sister, Owner and Founder of ZACI Yoga), who introduced her to ZACI Yoga. It didn’t take long for Debbie to become absolutely enthralled and completely immersed in the practice of yoga. So much so that she decided to certify with ZACI (Zion Academy of Certified Instruction) to expand her understanding and knowledge. She completed her RYT 200 in November 2015 with no intention of teaching. Low and behold, she caught the teaching bug and wanted share her knowledge, love and passion of yoga with everyone possible.
Soon after completing her RYT 200, she realized that she craved and desired more! Debbie recently completed ZACI’s RYT 500 Advanced Yoga Teacher-Training program. She yearns to continue to learn, expand and share her knowledge with everyone around her. She is constantly talking about yoga; at times boring her loved ones because that’s all she talks about. She’s utterly intrigued by what yoga has taught her and how it’s a never ending journey of pure greatness! “I am forever in debt to Paula for following her true path and opening a yoga studio and school. She is absolutely my greatest mentor and idol! ZACI has completely transformed my life."
