Hailing from a large Italian family in New Jersey, Deb moved to North Carolina in 2002 with her husband, Tom. Although Deb has lived in the South for over a decade, she has remained true to her New Jersey, Italian roots and, of course, the accent. Deb has more than 25 years of experience working in the ever-changing field of human resources – helping business owners and managers build and manage a strong workforce.

Deb founded DJK HR Consulting ( in 2008. She established this consulting firm to assist small and mid-size businesses – primarily those without a dedicated HR presence in-house – with human resources guidance.  DJK HR Consulting merged with monocleHR in April 2017.

Prior to founding DJK HR Consulting, Deb worked in human resources in the garment industry, the staffing industry and also with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). In addition to working in a human resources role, Deb has also worked in employee insurance – assisting businesses with property and casualty insurance and workers’ compensation coverage.

When she is not on the phone with a client, you can find Deb cooking a huge Italian meal, with the help of Tom, and entertaining friends and family.
