In 1997 Deb was head-hunted by another nursing agency to be the Manager of the Temp division, where she spent 5 years leading a team of 8 consultants in a very competitive market and was fortunate enough, in this role, to return to the U.K. on several occasions to recruit nurses for New Zealand.
Deb and Mike had their first daughter, Madi, in 2000, and in 2002 they decided to relocate to Hawkes Bay where Mike had grown up. Arriving in Hawkes Bay Deb worked part time as a Nurse at Royston Private Surgical Hospital. Next came their 2nd daughter Chloe.
