Deborah Heeringa


Deborah grew up in Grand Haven, MI. After attending Grand Haven High School, she worked as an insurance representative for more than 18 years. In August of 2017, she started the house supervisor position with Brothers & Sisters Homes. Her responsibilities include full-time care for six men. She oversees daily activities, meals, and personal hygiene. She also dispenses medications and facilitates educational or job-related activities.

Deborah’s favorite aspect of her job is observing the genuine interactions between residents and the way they care for each other. Her work is most rewarding when she can be helpful in teaching the residents a new skill, watching as they work to enrich their own lives.

When Deborah isn’t busy with work, she enjoys camping, biking, reading.
