Deb Moore is prepared for the role as your next Escambia County Tax Collector. She continued her family’s tradition of service to our country and is a 12 year veteran of the United States Air Force. Trained as a Cryptologist at Pensacola’s very own NTTC Corry Station, Deb went on to serve tours of duty in England, Greece, back at Corry Station and Japan. Throughout her career she was given responsibilities beyond her pay grade and she always rose to the challenge. Deb was promoted to E6 by Brigadier General Paul Martin right here at Corry station for her efforts. She made the next grade to MSgt in just 10 years, as she arrived in Japan. There the Air Force was going through a paradigm shift in management to Total Quality Management (Malcolm Baldrige) and Deb was chosen as an instructor and the lead in bringing it to the unit. She continued her management studies with the University of Maryland and, in preparation for this job, just completed Management of a Tax Collector Office TCC502 offered through the FL DOR and TCC504 Collection of Licenses, Taxes and Fees later this month while she studies TCC501 Duties & Responsibilities of a Florida Tax Collector at home.
Deb’s commitment to her family and her community is consummate. Instrumental in the 1st Congressional District Honor Flight, taking World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., she has been recognized as An Angel in our Midst twice by WEAR TV3. This is her sixth year working to raise money to support underinsured and uninsured women in our community as a member of the Krewe du YaYa’s. She participates in Relay for Life, Pink Ribbon, and MSABC since 2005 and is a Road to Recovery Driver. Additionally, she is a United Way Board Member serving as their Advocacy/2-1-1 Chair and reads to a Pre-K student with Every Child a Reader in Escambia (ECARE). Deb is the county appointee to the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee and was elected as the vice chair. She serves as the treasurer on her Condominium Association and manages their budget daily. With the Community Traffic Safety Team, Deb is a certified helmet fitter and fits kids for bike helmets at local events. From substitute teacher to PTO President, team mom, coach or Guardian Ad Litem — whatever was needed at the time in her son’s life or in her community, Deb has answered the call, including training as an FHSAA swim official and USTA tennis official.

DrinKitz was formed in 2012 to develop, produce, and market an innovative and unique line of powdered cocktail drink mixes. The company was formed by a group of US Navy guys far too cheap and lazy to fully stock and mix drinks from their own bars or the endurance to carry it all around. After discovering that mixing drinks from a bartenders guide got more difficult with the number of drinks consumed they asked the golden question —why can’t we just add a packet to our favorite alcohol, mix, and drink. Now you can!
Far different than anything on the market, these drinks are easy to use and mix, require no knowledge of bartending or mixology, and save you time and money. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool, hosting an event at home, heading out on vacation, or want to impress family and friends, you’ll want these by your side. With one shot of your vodka, rum, or tequila, a little water and ice, and your choice of over 30 drink mixes, with a quick shake you become an instant bartender. Want something different? No problem, just grab a different mix packet! Want something we don’t have, let us know.
Made in America with high-quality ingredients, and available through regional liquor distributors, various retail markets, caterers, and on our own Amazon storefront (coming soon), these great products put fantastic tasting, full-bar quality mixed drinks at your fingertips—without the bar tab.
