Debbie Mauney began her career at the Clay County Department of Social Services in 1990, serving as Director since 1997. Debbie has a Bachelor Degree in Social Work from Western Carolina University. Debbie was appointed by the Clay County Commissioners as the Clay County Health and Human Services Director in 2018 when the county consolidated Health and Human Services. This position includes the supervision of Health, Social Services, and Senior Services. Over the years, she has served on many local and regional non-profit boards including being active in the startup of many of these organizations.
Debbie’s passion over the years has been to develop resources in house (DSS) or work with the community in developing resources that did not exist when needed. Her career in social services has afforded her the opportunity to see that each of us can make a difference in a person’s life if we are persistent with a vision to make our community a better place to live. Debbie is married to Alan Mauney, and they reside in Brasstown, NC and have one daughter named Allie.
