About Us

Bridge of the Permian Basin is comprised of Amanda Shaw-Nichols, Debra Jones and Mercedes Barker.

Debra Jones is a retired school teacher from ECISD. She’s been married to Dale for 34 years or as she says, “forever.” Some of her passions are sewing, knitting and of course, bridge, which is at the top of the list. She is an ACBL Director.

Mercedes Barker is a Financial Advisor and co-founder of Equilibria Wealth Management brokerage firm in Odessa, TX. Her passions are music and bridge. She is an ACBL Director and accredited Easybridge Teacher.
