As a teenager, the rich colours, textures and flavours of fresh produce in neighbourhood markets, grocery stores and cooking shows constantly fascinated Debbie. She then set out on a journey of discovering the relationship between food, behaviour, and health. With a major in Food Science and Nutrition, she later went on to complete her graduate studies in Medical Science, focusing her research on eating behaviour, childhood obesity, and the quality of life of adolescents. She soon discovered her interest in writing as opportunities to pen various public health topics came knocking on her door. Debbie then stepped out of her comfort zone when she forayed into the public relations industry, an exciting stint she will always treasure.
