Deborah (Debbie) Ditchfield BA (UNSW) worked in the real estate industry for many years, both in sales and as an educator. For the last two decades, Debbie has worked in the complementary health industry in various roles, including marketing, sales and administration.
Debbie is passionate about many causes including protection of the natural environment, renewable energy, the over-use of plastic and, of course, the right of a human being to be treated with respect and dignity during the final leg of their journey through life.
After volunteering at polling booths for the Voluntary Euthanasia Party in the 2015 State and 2016 Federal elections, Debbie recognised that many people felt strongly about this issue and that the biggest hurdle was converting public support into votes by politicians for a voluntry assisted dying bill. Debbie has joined our board in the hope that she can help make a difference in this important campaign, so that we can have choice in NSW before too long.
Life Member of Dying with Dignity NSW.
