Deborah Thompson moved to the area with her family in 2019 and is excited to find a career and get more involved here. She is from New Hampshire and loves where she grew up, but has always been drawn to Pennsylvania, as her parents grew up in Hydetown and Oil City.
Deb attended Edinboro University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Sport and Recreation Administration and graduated summa cum laude. She has also completed courses through the Life Office Management Association (LOMA).
For her career, Deb started working for Edward Jones as Branch Office Administrator in Oil City in 2020. Before that, she worked as a Claims Associate for Loyal Christian Benefit Association (LCBA), a life insurance company.
With her husband Eric, Deb is raising two children—Carter and Peyton. She also spends time exercising, participating in sports and lawn games, playing board games, and listening to music. In our area, some of her favorite amenities include the trails along the Allegheny River, Clarks Donuts, and Hasson Pool.
“In the next 5 to 10 years, I hope to be in a place that my family and I can vacation yearly, the kids are in sports and whatever activity they desire and I have a stable career which I enjoy,” Deb told us.
