Catamount Womenaid

Board of Directors

Deb Horton

President & Founder. Deb lives in Deerfield. She is a social worker to whom service to the community has always been a priority. She learned about Womenaid when she applied as a validator to a different Womenaid and recognized how a small amount of money made such a difference. When Deb searched for a Womenaid in Deerfield and realized there was none, she recruited a group of dedicated women and formed a women-led board to create Catamount Womenaid. When she has free time, Deb practices gratitude and hangs out with her family.
