Debbie Smith is dedicated to making life better in the Houston community. By day, she is a Search Manager for Ledgent Search Group in the Houston Galleria office, helping candidates and clients alike build their livelihood. But by night, she is passionately giving back to those in need.
Through her charity work, Debbie supports Can Do Houston, an organization focused around healthy eating initiatives and fighting obesity in children. This organization works to provide educational opportunities to change how people eat and grocery shop. Debbie has rallied her coworker to join her on Community Giving Days and help package up fresh fruits and vegetables, making them accessible.
But Debbie doesn’t stop there. She also supports Santa Maria Hostel, an organization that serves as a halfway house for women and children in need. Santa Maria seeks to empower women and their families to lead healthy, successful, productive and self-fulfilling lives. Debbie brings her expertise to the table, teaching monthly classes focused on resumes and interview etiquette.
When the holiday season comes around, many of these women don’t have the funds or support to create a traditional Christmas for their families. Debbie encourages the local Roth teams in the Houston area to pitch in to purchase toys for the children in need. Last year, they “adopted” an entire family and bought everything on their Christmas list.
Our question is, when does she sleep?! We are in awe of you, Debbie!
As our Roth Hero, Debbie is the recipient of a $500 donation for the charity of her choice. She has selected to contribute the funds to the Santa Maria Hostel.
