Debby Torres is a freelance writer living with her husband, Gus, and only child Peter (Everybody’s Boy) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She is active in her community as an advocate for individuals who have Autism or who are otherwise “differently-abled.” Debby works in the nonprofit sector, providing supports to maximize inclusion for individuals and their family members with developmental disabilities. She is also an energetic volunteer with many organizations in North Carolina and maintains the blog as a cathartic venue to share her experiences with others.
Debby was born and raised in the Nature Coast town of Crystal River, Florida. Prior to her role as Mommy she worked for the U.S. Department of State in Port Louis, Mauritius and later as a Public Relations Director for an early education focused non-profit organization. Her family relocated to North Carolina in March of 2008.
She aspires to practice the principles of yoga, but still finds it impossible to stifle a giggle when confronted with the term “downward facing dog”. Debby is fluent in English, Frenglish, Spanglish and International Sarcasm and her special talents include the ability to eat practically any food with chopsticks, talking her way out of overdraft charges and telling pretentious stories about when she used to live “abroad”.
Views expressed in this blog are in no way associated with the organizations/ventures that Debby is involved with. (They’re good folks, really.)
Debby is available for speaking engagements, freelance writing, and provides consulting services in the fields of Public Relations and Marketing.
