Network Technician Specialist

Debra Harris is the IT/Communication technician with the PHEPP department. She began her employment in September 2008 with Shelby County Health Department.

Before she began working with the Emergency preparedness department she rarely thought about disasters and being prepared in the event of a disaster. This job has provided her with the knowledge not only for personal preparedness but how to communicate with others about the importance of being prepared.

She worked at First Tennessee Bank for 27 years as a project coordinator in the IT department. She enjoyed her times at the bank and still has friends that she keeps in contact with today. 

She graduated from Booker T. Washington High School and was voted as the funniest in her class. She then attended LeMoyne-Owen College and received a Bachelor's in Business Administration.

In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her 96 year old mother and reading Danielle Steel and John Grisham novels.
