During her career with Questar, Debra managed several core focus areas of the company including the Questar Education and Arts Foundations (which continue to exist today as sub-Foundations of the much larger Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation); the corporate volunteer program; the grassroots Employee Political Involvement Program and Employee Political Action Committee; plus the annual company party.
She currently serves as a commissioner and vice-chair for UServeUtah, the Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism, and is a long-standing planning committee member for the Salt Lake Chamber’s annual Women and Business conference. Over he years Debra has served on numerous boards, committees, catalyst teams and panels related to the nonprofit and business communities plus mentored many employees through the company’s six-month-long mentor program. She is a member of several Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and advises all Western Region ERG’s as they develop community giving and outreach plans.
