Deb Ace the Lunch Lady Post author By Chef Ryan Callahan Post date May 2, 2019 Deb Ace was born and raised in Liverpool England. She relocated to the US when she was 17 and worked for a plastic surgeon as a patient care coordinator. These days she lives in Maryville Tennessee and works as a lunch lady at a local high school. Ironically enough her mother managed a school cafeteria in England. Makes you wonder if the trip overseas was worth it, she assures me it was.
