A Small Gesture Goes a Long Way.
This Professional Understands.
It’s Debbie Burks’ day off and she’s just finished dropping off some paperwork at the Junior League of Birmingham. Then she’s on her way to Jessie’s Place, a local women’s shelter, to pay a visit and help out. Many people might enjoy a relaxing day at home when their workweek is done, but Debbie simply prefers to spend her free time helping her community and trying to make a difference in people’s lives. That’s just who she is.
A Community Connection
As a lifelong resident of Birmingham, Debbie feels a deep connection to the area and is compelled to give back to the community she has always called “home.” Debbie also donates much of her time to her church and the United Way Pantry. She has assisted with the congressional campaign for Habitat for Humanity and participated in the Adopt a School program. It doesn’t take long to realize that she truly enjoys serving her community. From the moment you meet Debbie, her genuine warmth and caring demeanor shine through, and it’s obvious that she wears her heart on her sleeve when it comes to her community and her work.
Clarity of Vision
Debbie’s sincere desire to make a difference has been the foundation of her success throughout her life. After earning her degree in marketing, she entered the corporate environment. In retail management, she put the needs of her customers first and earned the respect of her peers with her detailed attention to all aspects of the business. As a property manager, she was tuned into the concerns of her residents. When her entrepreneurial spirit led her to become the co-owner of a computer training company, she formulated curricula that fit the individual needs of every school whose students enrolled. For Debbie, it’s about having the clarity of vision to see a need and create a solution to meet it.
The Art of Success
When Debbie does take some time for herself, she pursues another of her passions—the arts. Her grandparents had a great appreciation for the arts and while that was her initial influence, her college liberal arts programs inspired her even more. Today she enjoys going to art shows and concerts, and she loves decorating and doing arts and crafts projects.
Driven to Be Her Best
