Meet our Family – Deb P.

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Say hello to Deborah P, one of the three Debs here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. She has a small ‘Weird Family’ watching over her. She tells us it started with one and more were slowly added over the years. She told us she “loves, loves working for Sturbridge” – too sweet.

What is your position and what do you do here at SYW?
I work in the accounting department as “staff accountant”, one of the “accounting goddesses.” I work on invoicing, deposits, damage claims, solving accounting issues with vendors and more.

When did you start working at SYW?
I’ve been here for a total of 7 years. The first time was for 5 1/2 years and now 1 1/2 years, all of it in the accounting department.

What is something that makes you unique?
I’m dubbed “get it done Deb”.

Do you have SYW items in your house?  Which is your favorite?
Yes, quite a few. My favorite is the corner chair. My kids each have some as well.

What makes your home a home.
Everyone working together to get stuff done so we can all enjoy life. The warm welcoming atmosphere, family and friends. My garden.

Thanks Deb! More of our SYW family to come!
