Debra joined the Board in 2022. She has been in the business world since 1999, and is the owner of Compass Media. Born in Montague, she now lives in her grandparents’ original home in Victoria Cross with her husband Ken, 2 cats and 2 dogs. Debra has served on many boards in the past: Labour Standards, Queens Health, Community Museums Association, The Guild, & others.
A fun fact: Debra’s great-grandfather, Edwin Parkman, may have worked in the Museum’s building in the early twentieth century during his time as a customs agent. Mr. Parkman was also a jeweller and the namesake of Parkman Avenue directly across from the museum.
