Debbie Deegan, M.A.
As a project associate, Debbie supports the consulting team by managing client project logistics and operations for a successful partnership that results in reaching our shared goals. Her mindful work ethic and attention to detail ensures that clients receive the best possible experience when working with McKinley.
Prior to joining the team, Debbie interned for elected officials and served as a point of contact for constituencies across the globe — from Las Vegas to Glasgow, Scotland. She went on to spend several years working in the rare book trade where she played an important role in assisting individuals and institutions from all over the world in curating collections.
Debbie credits her experiences growing up in both the Philippines and the U.S. for her openminded outlook as well as her ability to recognize different perspectives and work from multiple angles to find creative, effective and sustainable solutions.
Debbie studied political science and international relations at Bryn Mawr College and has a Master of Arts in European and Eurasian studies from George Washington University. Outside of work, she loves to read, travel and can usually be found watching a cooking show, exploring a museum or strolling through the park admiring dogs.
