    Debra Hyson

    Debra C. Hyson serves as the President of the Board of Directors for Raleigh's LGBT Chamber of Commerce, also known as the Raleigh Business and Professional Network (RBPN). She is the longest serving president and the first woman to hold that volunteer position and is a lifelong activist, entrepreneur, and world traveler.

    Debra is part of a team co-organizing the first Pride Life Expo in the Triangle scheduled for April 4th, 2020, at the McKimmon Center on NC State's campus. Debra makes a living as a real estate investor and specializes in buying vacant properties that are diamonds in the rough. Debra is the epitome of a DIY entrepreneur and is hands on in renovating the properties which provides rental housing for people within the beltline.

    Born and raised in New York City, second generation American, she is one of the American dream stories. Her hard work, motivation and drive made her dreams come true, while making a difference within her community. Debra has a deep love of what she does, and an unquenchable desire to use her talents to serve others.
