Deb DermyerLamb

Deb DermyerLamb

CEO

Deb is a graduate of the Western School of Feng Shui holds degrees from the University of Oklahoma and the University of Nebraska in accounting and engineering respectively. She began her work with the IFSG in 2004 at the local level in chapter leadership and joined the Board of Directors in 2006 in the dual roles of IFSG Board Treasurer and IFSG Membership Director. In 2007, she added the role of IFSG office management to her resume working in the areas of office administration, finance, business, website maintenance, communications, newsletters, publications, and social media management. These dual roles of board and office allowed Deb to balance her administrative and organizational skills with her passion for and training in Feng. She resigned from the board in late 2010 to focus her efforts on running the IFSG office and expanding roles. In October 2017, Deb returned to the Board of Directors as Interim CEO. Her leadership, dedication, and passion for the IFSG and its members, her experience with the overall organization, its policies and procedures, its strategies, and long term focus make her an ideal candidate for this role. Continuing her work in the office will simplify communication lines and provide stronger focus for members, benefits, and strategic planning.
