Growing up in Los Angeles/Hollywood, CA, Debra always had a passion for beauty and fashion. She attended LA Trade Technical College for Theatrical Makeup and The Learning Tree University where she learned all aspects of makeup artistry.


After completing several student films and photo shoots at UCLA and American Art Institute, she realized she also needed to have a strong knowledge of skin care, and took it upon herself to enroll at Newberry School of Beauty where she received her license in Esthetics.


She is a Makeup Department Head and a Personal. She has worked on several Music Videos, Commercials, Films, and TV Shows. Debra has proven herself to be very well rounded. She says, "After all these years doing what I do, from dirt, blood and long hours to flying to 13 cities in two weeks for press, I still love it!"
