“Deb initially agreed to co-coach a team of 15 girls but soon found herself as the Head Coach when her co-coach had a work-related move mid-season. Deb offered stability to the team during the transition, while maintaining a sense of fun and caring for the girls.  We are extremely appreciative of Deb's dedication to Girls on the Run NH.”
