Standing in someone else’s shoes is one of the enjoyable things about designing Apps. Making them useful and easy to understand for the person and job at hand is Debby’s goal. Using the FileMaker family of products makes it easy to deliver solutions to a computer, tablet, iPad or smart phone.

Debby has worked in a myriad of industries: commercial, construction, transport, education, government, research, and manufacturing.

In her early career, Debby was a research biochemist before taking up the challenge of assessing patent applications. Later she worked in government: managing million dollar programs and as a market analyst I shaped health policies. Since then Debby has designed business systems and databases for others to manage their information and business processes.

As part of a commitment to excellence Debby is a Certified FileMaker Developer since version 7.
