Debbie Hite Stewart

Debbie Hite Stewart joined the American Heart Association in 1994 and has served as the Senior Executive Director of Oklahoma City for the past eight years. She champions all aspects of the AHA’s mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke in Oklahoma.
From 2011 – 2014, her team was ranked number one in growth and/or sustained growth in the United States for the AHA. Hite won multiple AHA awards for excellence during this time, including the Award of Excellence in Mission and Revenue Generation Initiatives, the top award in the AHA’s Southwest Affiliate.
Previously, she served as Executive Director for the AHA’s Heartland Affiliate, earning recognition as Coach of the Year (2004) and an Award of Excellence (2002) from the American Heart Association. Between 1994 and 1999, Hite served in various development roles—including Senior Heart Walk Director—while receiving various AHA awards for leadership, fundraising and development.
Hite is the Founder and President of The Solo Parent Foundation, a non-profit organization that benefits and brings together single-parent families. The organization’s annual Family-Mart attracts up to 500 attendees to teach children the joy of giving and value of money, as well as support “solo” parents so they are encouraged and feel appreciated during the Christmas Season. She also is a Community Group Leader with Crossings Community Church and is a Paul Harris Fellow of Oklahoma City Rotary Club 29.
A graduate of UCO, she is newly married to Jeff Stewart, a pastor at Crossings Community Church. She has two children—Aislynn and Sullivan—as well as three children through marriage, whom she lovingly refers to as “bonus kids”—Sarah, Matt and Stephen. She has a passion for traveling, and in her free time loves scuba diving and working in her garden.
