DeBakey has been in the title industry since 1993, first working for a title company in Chicago, Illinois, then as an independent attorney agent for Stewart Title Guaranty Company before joining the company in 1997.

In addition to her role as senior underwriting counsel, DeBakey has also been named secretary of the board of directors for Stewart Title Guaranty de México, S.A. de C.V. Her time at Stewart has given DeBakey a superior understanding of underwriting title insurance and reinsurance transactions for Mexico and Latin America.

She also received a Certificate of Study for the London Law Programme at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law.
