Debbie Jabbour was born and raised in Edmonton but then moved to High Level in early 2014 to take a position as a provisional psychologist. She quickly grew to love the community and to deeply respect the diversity and drive of the amazing people who live there. Jabbour is an active community volunteer with Chinchaga Adult Learning, High Level Theatre Troupe, and the High Level Victim Services Unit.
She has four adult children and four grandchildren. As a distance learner, Jabbour earned her BA and MA through Athabasca University, where she was actively involved in the students’ association and sparked her interest in politics.
