You will be dearly missed. I was here right after you created Beauty Tech board and I learned so much when I was a new tech. Thank you for all you've done over the years to contribute to our industry...I am a better nail tech, partly because of you.

This is where my nail career began in 2003, when I discovered the BT boards. Debbie was truly a pioneer, way ahead of her time. I made so many friends and connections right here, and they have continued almost 15 years later. Because of her and BT, I attended Premiere Orlando for the first time, entered the Strut My Stuff contest one year (didn't place but that didn't matter - she got me out of my comfort zone). I can count on one hand the people in this industry who truly made a difference early in my career. Debbie is one of them. RIP Webmaster.
You're so right, Laura, she connected many of us. I met you and Tee on here. And Peggy, Darcy, Darlene, Rhonda, Lynn, Tammy.....the list goes on. I do hope BeautyTech will live on.
Rest easy sweet Debbie. And thank you for the gift of my second family. So many of us owe so much to you. There aren't many words to express how we feel today. You will never be forgotten.

I have the same experience, pretty much. I first met her and a small group from here at a 3 Day CND Roadshow in Rhode Island! They were the super fun, loud group with the matching "beautytech" t-shirts on...I HAD to know what was going on, so I went over and introduced myself. That was it! The beginning of my career change. What an amazing ride she has taken us all on...RIP my dear Deb xo
RIP Debbie. this site helped and inspired me so much.
