Another 25-Year Champ!

We’re in a celebratory mood. 🙂 Why? Because today is the 25-year anniversary of another of our fabulous Consultants: Debbi Fournier! It was Debbi’s passion for stamping that led her to D.O.T.S., the precursor to Close To My Heart, as a way of earning a little extra money for her family. 25 years later, we are honored to have her as part of this company; she is an extraordinary example of friendship, integrity, and loyalty, values we cherish here at Close To My Heart.

We recognized Debbi’s 25-year anniversary this year at Convention by inviting her to the stage and presenting her with a scrapbook filled with pictures from her many experiences, friendships, and achievements. You can look at some pages from this scrapbook here, and see for yourself what a lovely person she is.

In addition to achieving the esteemed title of Senior Executive Director in her time as a Consultant, Debbi has also earned two incentive trip cruises through her hard work and dedication—one to the Western Caribbean and the other to the Southern Caribbean.

Executive Director Joanne Walton, who has known Debbi for over 20 years, considers Debbi one of her closest friends, affirming that Debbi is the epitome of loyalty and personal integrity. When Joanne joined D.O.T.S. as a brand new Consultant, Debbi became a mentor to her, showing her how to run her business, even though Debbi was not her official Upline. According to Joanne, Debbi has never seen Team divisions but rather helps anyone and everyone who needs it. Over the years, Debbi, has continued helping Joanne with expo booths just for the sake of their friendship and from the goodness in her heart.

Debbi’s genuine care for others also makes her an incredible wife and mother. Her husband, Gary, has been by her side through her entire Close To My Heart journey. She has been a loving mother to her two sons, Garrett and Richard, and stepson, Bo. While she has helped support her family with her Close To My Heart business, her family has similarly supported her passion since day one, and even included a crafting studio in their home addition—what a lucky lady!
