Deb Geaslen, Secretary
District 4

Appointed 2020

Deb Geaslen has lived in the SLO community for 27 years. She and her loving husband Thomas have raised 4 beautiful children who are now raising their 10 gorgeous grandchildren.  She has a varied educational background where she explored her many interests including office management and culinary arts.

 

Deb’s professional background includes: administrative assistant, office management, bookkeeping, payroll, financial and government reporting, as well as nonprofit compliance. In addition, she is co-owner with her husband in their tax and bookkeeping business, but her real passion is contributing to the growth and success of her community and its residents.

 

Deb co-created the Paul Teixeira Community Thanksgiving which serves holiday meals to over 1100 individuals each year and has over 75 volunteers, of which she organizes. In addition, she has served as the treasurer for many local nonprofits: Latino Outreach Council, Olde Towne Nipomo Association, South County Visitor Services, and the South County Family Educational & Cultural Center. The kids in the community are always a priority, as she has volunteered her time with the San Luis Obispo County 4-H Management Board, and both the Nipomo and the Adobe Nipomo 4-H Clubs.

 

In 2010 Deb was appointed as the District 4 Legislative Assistant to Supervisor Paul Teixeira, where she ultimately assumed the interim office and assisted the constituents until the governor made his appointment for the permanent position.

 

In March 2019, Deb was honored to receive the San Luis Obispo County Commission on the Status of Women Wall of Fame Award for Volunteerism in SLO County for all her efforts in the community.

 

Deb Geaslen was appointed District 4 Commissioner on December 8, 2020, assessing the needs of women and girls in the county, and using that information to better understand and serve the community.
