Debbie Payne

REALTOR® and author Debbie Payne decided to begin journaling at 50. This hobby quickly took off and prompted her first book, "No Thanks, I'm Full" – a memoir sharing her experience being born into generational trauma, how and why she broke the cycle, and the life lessons she learned along the way. Debbie decided to donate 50 percent of the book's proceeds to the Canadian Mental Health Association, in memory of her sister, Gale, who suffered with mental health issues most of her life. Her hope is that we keep the conversation going surrounding mental health to help each other in whatever ways we can.
