Deborah’s standout experience has always focused on financial stewardship, technology, cybersecurity, and data protection—and she now brings that expertise to both the Primis Board as well as her current role as CEO of Catalyst ADV, a technology and strategic growth advisory firm and venture capital advisor. And we’re not the only ones that benefit from her guidance; Deborah also serves on the boards of Archer Aviation, Section IO and Equinix.
Her stance on progress is “when opportunities present themselves, step up!” which is probably a good mantra to live by if you want to have NASA on your resume. But Deborah also adheres to the idea of “work hard and play hard” and “live your life to the fullest.” Meaning, you won’t only find her solving galactic problems, but also stopping to smell the flowers and making time for family, friends and her French Bulldog Daisy.
