Debbie Reaney Perkins is a native Washingtonian, and is the President of RLI Insurance Associates, a second generation family business specializing in personal and commercial coverage.
Debbie’s life passion is giving back. She has been a caregiver for the past 20 years for numerous family and friends, is a staunch supporter of the work of caregivers and end-of-life care, and advocates for the hospice cause. Now a widow, Debbie fills the role of “mom” to countless young persons, giving them temporary refuge when needed, guides them through tough times and inspires them to grow and become productive role models in society. She also taught English as a Second Language (ESL) at Jerusalem Baptist Church in Fairfax.
Debbie’s biggest challenge in life has been learning to live life on her own after her husband’s death, but her mantra is, “there will always be someone with a harder life than me!”
