Columbus Women’s Book. Debbie and her husband Keith have two daughters, Meredith Keeran Kessler ’96 and Kelsey Keeran Boole ’01, both of which are in the Columbus Academy Athletic Hall of Fame.

Debbie’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy

“The friendships I have cultivated throughout the years with my colleagues and with the parents of my children’s friends. These friendships are still being maintained long after my girls’ graduations. I have been so fortunate personally and professionally to have held various positions at Academy and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity my girls had to attend here. Another favorite thing of mine about CA is that I have always felt that professionally my voice has been heard. Professional development opportunities abound at Academy and we are encouraged to expand our horizons.”

Little-known fact

“I grew up an only child and, as personable as I might appear, I don’t mind being alone (just not all the time!). I can also talk like Donald Duck and love sharing that with the lower-schoolers!”

Favorite sports teams

“Watching my daughter, Meredith, compete. She is a professional triathlete. Watching her in Hawaii is scary, but seeing her passion become her profession has been rewarding. I also like the Ohio State Buckeyes and any team LeBron James is on!”
