Meet Deborah

 

Deborah Pytell joined Melerine Wealth Management in January 2022 as an Assistant. She has 14 years of experience in investments and more than 40 years of experience in customer service.

Deb originally came into the investments profession with a banking and accounting background. She worked for temporary services for many years, which provided her with plenty of experience in administration and accounting. Her extensive banking education is from the American Bankers Association, American Institute of Banking and the Bankers Training Certification Center. Before banking, her education was through the Simdex Technical Institute in Houston, Texas. After returning to Louisiana in 2004, she attended the University of Southern Mississippi for certification in Microsoft.

While working at TIB Bank of the Keys, Deb was appointed a board member for the Just for Kids program. The program provided much-needed essentials for poor and homeless children in the Florida Keys area. She also was appointed Lieutenant in the Conch Republic Navy for her contribution to the Pirate’s Festival held annually in Key West, Florida.

Deb is very passionate about crafting and traveling. She loves experiencing whatever life has to offer, but her love for her family and friends is what’s most important to her. Most of her family is scattered all over the United States, which aligns nicely with her passion for travel.
