Deborah has three children Keisha and twins Zack and Dylan.

Zack and Dylan, were born with severe to profound hearing loss in July 2011 in New York. They were fitted with bilateral cochlear implants at 6 months old and began Auditory Verbal Therapy in New York. Two years later the family moved to the UK and joined Auditory Verbal UK's programme.

Deborah is a fantastic advocate for AVUK and regularly shares her story with the media.

She said: "I’m a very positive person and very focused on my kids development. I never give up and I always encourage them to reach any target they want in the best way possible."
