Medical Support Team
Co-owner and Your Care's Operations Director
Debora Wattenburg is co-owner and Your Care's Operations Director. Deb has a strong background in customer service, team building, community relations, marketing and is passionate about continually developing a culture with core values where patients know they can go for an excellent healthcare experience and where people want to work and grow their career. When asked by her husband, Eric Wattenburg, MD, if she'd consider running Your Care alongside with him her decision was easy as this was an opportunity to bring medical care back to where both she and Eric felt it should be.
During Deb's "off" time, you'll see her driving by with her daughter heading to Portland for dance, grabbing precious time with her son who is an engineering student at OSU, fly fishing with her husband Eric, and trotting around her arena on her horse, Dharmic or learning to train her colt, Chaplin.
Deb is honored to serve our community and to have the opportunity to work with her incredible Your Care team. Growing Your Care is a once in a lifetime opportunity and she plans to do everything possible to bring her community and beyond outstanding healthcare and patient service. Deb named "Your Care" and believes the name says it all!
