Let me introduce you to our first lady in our 50 over 50 project! 

Debra Dockery 


If you enjoy attending Festival in the Park or our Harvest Jubilee, chances are you may have seen Debra working these events. She loves music and she loves people so this is something that brings her joy! She has volunteered for over 15 years! She loves the concerts at the Carrington Pavillion in Danville, Va. and often is a greeter at the gate! Did I say she loves DANCING.....can't leave that part out for sure!!! If there is a dance floor, you bet she will be on the floor showing all her moves.

Debra is also a savvy business women! She owns two businesses in our area. She purchased COMPUTER BOOKEEPING & TAX SERVICE in 2000 after working there since 1994. They serve over 1200 clients that are more like family! She also owns and operates CURVES at 2380 Riverside Drive. She was a member and when the owner was going to move out of the area and put the business up for sale, she decided this was for her. YOU BELIEVE IN IT, THAT'S ENOUGH.....she really loves helping women find a way to improve their health.

She also attends Dan River Church and runs the Cafe' where she's serving coffee and juice on Sunday morning and gets to say good morning to everyone before the service. 

Debra has been on a journey to better health and has recently lost 30 pounds. Why not celebrate this!!! 

Debra is a wife, married 30 years to Doc , and a mother to one son, Jeremy. 



Me: "Whats the best part of being a woman over 50?"

Debra: "You know yourself, and don't care what other's think! " 


Me: " What advise would you give your 20 year old self?"

Debra: " Don't hold back going for your Dreams!! 60 is closer than you think! "
