Debbie Forstall has been a part of S.O.L.I.D. Board since the summer of 2013. The district took note of her community efforts in 2001, and honored her with the woman of the year award for the 38th Assembly District for her community service efforts and work with Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA).
Debbie is on staff at Shepherd of the Hills Church as the Community Relations Coordinator, and also serves on the board for the San Fernando Police Department’s Police Advisory Council. In 2009, after becoming a parent vendor through the North Los Angeles County Regional Center, she subsequently opened Flinn’s Supported Living where she currently oversees and operates this business.
Her love for community work began in 2000, when she became a member of the Northridge Kiwanis Club and the North Valley Chamber of Commerce until 2007. Then in 2001, while serving as the secretary and fundraising chairperson for NBIA, she co-created and hosted an extremely successful fundraiser for the organization.
While still devoting herself to volunteering in the community, she first joined the Shepherd staff in 2008, developing and promoting the partnership program of Shepherd’s Broadcast Department.
Her commitment to community service is only matched by her devotion to her family. She has also served on the Parent Teacher Association and volunteered at her daughter’s schools.
Debbie resides in Northridge with her husband, Mark, and three daughters, April, Tracie and Taylor.
