Debbie Stackis, SVP and GM of Consumer Solutions at ARRIS, has an adventurous side. “I was at lunch with my team and a member was talking about his experience with skydiving. It sounded like a lot of fun so I talked others into joining me that night. For the entire day they thought I was teasing about going until I called them into my office to get their credit card information!” Only Debbie and one other colleague found the courage to follow through with the skydive, but she says it was a great experience. “My favorite part was when the parachute opened – it felt like I was floating in air.”

And that’s not all. On a recent vacation she even tried a trapeze. Debbie may love to experience new things but she also loves the water, for her favorite activities are swimming and boating with her family. Above, you can see Debbie pictured with her family after an adventure-filled day of hiking.
