Prior to joining Kenexa, Debbie worked with The Gallup Organization as a managing partner, consulting on research and programs that impact client business performance. She holds a BA in Management and Human Relations from Bellevue University with continued education at Doane and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Debbie’s hobbies include running, photography, golf, and family time.  Photography is much more fun now with these “little” grandchildren subjects. Together, the Anstine family enjoys taking several trips a year to their lake property in Table Rock, Missouri.
