My Me Time: Debbie Fitzgerald

Co-owner of Fitzgerald Petersen Communications || Mom of two girls || From Denver

As a busy mom and business owner, Debbie Fitzgerald often spends her Me Time with the important people in her life. Whether it’s taking her dog for a long walk or spending time with her family and friends, Me Time gives her a chance to rejuvenate.

Debbie’s Me Time:

I can’t say enough about a good spa day to rejuvenate, but on an almost daily basis I take a long walk with our Scottie dog Winston. I live near James A. Bible Park and just walking on the bridge over the Highline Canal brings me instant peace.

How do you carve out Me Time?

Being a mom, school/nonprofit volunteer, and owning my own business, Me Time can be scarce, but I’m pretty good at finding Me Time even if it means spending quality time with my family and friends. Regan (my business partner) and I recently went to Italy with our husbands to celebrate our 10th anniversary in business. I would consider that some incredible Me Time—eating exquisite food, drinking great wine, and walking for miles on winding cobblestone streets—seeing the most beautiful sights with people we love.

Why is Me Time important to you?

Me Time is so important because it puts all your worries in perspective—Am I a good mom? Am I a good wife? Am I doing my very best at my job? Women put so much unnecessary pressure on themselves and my Me Time gives me a chance to rejuvenate and go back to basics, which is really what makes me the happiest.
