Deb Van Schaack
Deb Van Schaack spent her previous life as a public high school counselor in northern Vermont and has always loved all things outdoors – learning everything she can about the wonders of the natural world around us. After 37 wonderful years living in Vermont, Deb and her spouse moved to Bisbee in 2020 and are so happy to be part of this fantastic new community.
Deb has been passionate about hiking (both day and long-distance adventures) for many years. In 2007 she completed Vermont’s 270-mile Long Trail, thru-hiked the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail in 2013, hiked a stretch of the Colorado Trail in 2016, and became an Adirondack 46’er in 2019. In addition, she has had great adventures hiking three long-distance trails in Europe. Since moving to Bisbee, she continues to have fun exploring the many trails around Bisbee and the surrounding Huachucas ranges. As always, so much hiking and so little time!
When not hiking or walking through town, Deb enjoys working part-time as a walking tour guide for Country Walkers, gardening in her backyard, singing with the Bisbee Community Chorus, lifeguarding at the Bisbee City Pool, and traveling as much as she can.
