Personal stylist + pop-up boutique host
Deb also leveraged her experience in the fashion industry to launch her own personal styling company, working closely with celebrity and political figures in the DC metro area. Thanks to Deb’s unique ability to make women feel both comfortable and stylish by playing up their strengths, her client roster quickly grew—and she continues to style select clientele today. Inspiring style on a broader scale, Deb hosts an exclusive pop-up boutique several times a year, called FiFi. Hundreds of loyal followers flock to each much-anticipated event, eager to shop fresh, new products—many sourced from Deb’s frequent travels abroad.
Authentic + approachable
Today, Deb and Ben lead a team of 30 full-time employees at SCOUT headquarters in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. Despite the company’s substantial growth since its founding, Deb is committed to keeping SCOUT approachable, accessible, and authentic. A reflection of this commitment, Deb only uses employees and friends of the company as “models” in SCOUT marketing materials.
In addition to being an entrepreneur, mother, dog owner, and accomplished seamstress, Deb is also an avid philanthropist who has created two charitable organizations. The GO BO Fund supports families and children in area hospitals with their medical bills, and Santa’s Helpers gives underprivileged children gifts to put under the tree each year—all delivered in donated SCOUT bags.
