The bride-to-be is the daughter of Monica Debia-Thompson, of Buenos Aires, Argentina and the late Roberto Debia. She is a certified healthcare interpreter.
Her fiance, a 2004 graduate of Danville High School, is the son of Dr. David and Diane McKinley, of Danville, Pa. He is a pediatric resident at the Children’s Hospital of New York in New York City.
