Name: Debbie Keyso

Where are you from? Connecticut

Role at The Florida Center: Vice President of Healthy Families Services

How long have you been with The Florida Center?  20 years

What does a typical day look like? One of the things I love about this job is that there is no “typical” day. I go to a LOT of meetings, work on grants/budgets/reports, and provide supervision.  My days are never boring!

What’s your favorite part of your job?  I love hearing about the successes our participants have had as a result of their involvement with the program.

What are some of your hobbies?  Swimming, walking, reading, traveling, watching the Rays, USF football and Florida Gators basketball, and cheering on my son at basketball games

What does a perfect weekend for you look like?  Any weekend where I don’t have to set an alarm, cook, do laundry or wash dishes would be wonderful – the perfect weekend would be time with my family, a nice dinner out, and watching sunset at the Venice Jetty.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?  I would love to be able to fly so that I could avoid the traffic during season!
