Debbie Hazelton

Debbie Hazelton

Senior Researcher

Debbie joined nfpSynergy in May 2017 having been a summer intern in both 2014 and 2015. She is embedded in the projects team and works alongside nfpSynergy’s management team and colleagues from other teams on a wide range of bespoke qualitative and quantitative projects. Debbie works on all aspects of our research projects from planning, project managing and delivering fieldwork through to data analysis and reporting.

Debbie graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2016, having studied a combination of both human and physical geography. Her dissertation was based on evaluating the motivations for volunteering by retiring baby boomers. Before joining nfpSynergy Debbie volunteered part-time at a local charity, The Besom in Cambridge whilst also working at a software company where she realised she preferred charities and people to accounting.

Debbie is often seen leaving the office with her big rucksack on a Friday to spend her weekends traveling around the country.
