To fulfill this enjoyment and to foster continued learning she took a part time job with a local plastic surgeon.

Cosmetic surgery continues to appeal to her artistic side as she has always had a fondness for aesthetics. After building a solid foundation working in a busy hospital, Debra elected to work at The Evendale Medical Center.
