Over the years, she has judged numerous food competitions, beer, wine and martini contests. (It's a tough life!)
Her love for the Jersey Shore—the "real Jersey Shore," as she puts it—was cultivated at an early age. Her grandparents were beach club owners and resided in Sea Bright, and Deb grew up on the sand in the summer and the winter as well. Today she resides with her family in Point Pleasant and is lucky enough to take a daily morning walk to the boardwalk, which she considers her daily commute.
