Debbie Anglin, APR
Debbie Anglin has served in a variety of public relations capacities in corporate, nonprofit and agency settings. She earned her B.A. in political science from the University of Oklahoma and passed her national accreditation test in public relations.

I love live music. If I don’t have tickets for a concert that’s a month away, I get antsy. My genre is contemporary alternative. While I love Depeche Mode and Gene Loves Jezebel (after all, I grew up in the 80s), my favorite is new stuff. Some of those are Young Empires, Walk the Moon, Royal Teeth and Ms Mr. Center of the Universe in Tulsa and Austin City Limits are always good events for hearing some of these and new bands I’ve never heard. I want to go to Coachella in 2017.
I also run - been doing it since the 5th grade. I don’t set any time or distance records, I just do it for my sanity. My favorite route is at Lake Hefner.
Finally, I have a young son whom I adore and enjoy playing with. When we aren't at soccer or baseball, we are playing with other kids in the neighborhood.
