Deborah Robbins

Office Administrator

After retiring from a career in Administrative Support and Health Records Administration, Deborah now serves as the Office Administrator at River of Life. With a passion for helping the vulnerable and those who are hurting, she serves various ministries within the church. She loves to sing and worship God as part of the Worship Team at RoL and as a choir member outside the church.

Deborah loves to garden and be outside enjoying the blessing of God’s creation. She says there is nothing like the thrill of a bird landing on her hand for some food and watching wildlife. When not in the garden, you’ll find her with camera at hand, cycling or hiking.
