Originally from NY, Deb earned a B.B.A from Siena College, and attended the John F. Welch Leadership Development Institute and Northwestern University: Kellogg School of Management. Deb has enjoyed a successful career in business rising to senior level executive positions with GE, ARAMARK, and First Transit. Deb was introduced to Xtend Barre while working out of state during the week and commuting long distance to Bel Air on weekends to be with her family. She quickly became a true believer in this fabulous workout. When Deb stepped away from her executive responsibilities in order to live full time with her family and couldn’t find Xtend Barre studio in Bel Air, she knew she had to open one and bring this fun and challenging workout to other women in the community. She hopes you enjoy Xtend Barre as much as she does and looks forward to meeting you at the barre!
