Debra’s background in marketing and real estate, along with her studies in design at Maine College of Art, provides the perfect blend of understanding and knowledge of the building process and its logistics. Raised in a construction family, Debra has had a lifelong appreciation for fine design and architecture. She has also been influenced by the history of architectural details experienced in her travels throughout the country and abroad. After several moves to and from state—with the accompanying house renovations along the way—Debra returned to her New England roots in 2000 to call Portland, “home.”

She is integrally involved in COVE Homes, introducing potential clients to our home designs and the construction process, as well as assisting clients in finding the ideal property for their home and the way they live. In addition, she facilitates the technical construction administration of many Knickerbocker Group construction projects.

Always looking for a new project and inspiration, Debra feeds her creative edge with photography, staging spaces, and giving life to old furniture and finds. She and her husband enjoy the active lifestyle offered in coastal Maine and the Rangeley Lakes region.
