Debbie had many talents including amateur residential architectural design and she crafted four custom homes during her marriage. She owned Queensview Kennels, producing several AKC pedigree Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. She was recognized as a premier breeder throughout the East Coast and her puppies were highly rated and sought after.
