Foundation Hero: Debbie Miner

debbie_miner“Debbie and the generous folks at Viking Automatic Sprinkler are donating a full sprinkler system for HBF’s current project, Community of Hope, a shelter for women and children in St. Johns. We couldn’t do the work we do without amazing donations like this from the building industry.”

Tell us about yourself (What you do, how you got started in the business, etc.):
I started as a bookkeeper. I knew from the minute I walked in the doors in 1990 I would retire from here. I just never dreamed I would be an owner.

How did you get involved in the HBF? What keeps you involved?viking-logo-green
Our accountant, Ryan Boatsman (HBF Board Treasurer) introduced us to this project. Viking has always been a company based on “doing what’s right”. We have been very blessed to be in business over 86 years. It’s an easy decision to share our blessings with others.

What is a fun fact about you that not everyone knows?
I grew up in a family of musicians. I never played a sport, and had no exposure to the world of construction.

What is your favorite hobby?
That’s a tough one! Watching the Seahawks, cooking, quilting, crafting, and going on adventures with my husband!

Thanks again for being our “Hero”, we appreciate you!
