Debbie Day | Senior Accountant

I am a Senior Accountant, have been in the industry for over 16 years and have a Master of Commerce (Professional Accounting) from UNE.

Originally from a rural background in Central New South Wales, we had a ‘coastal change’ in 2002 when we moved to Grafton. I have been with Stephenson Marks since that time.

We have recently undergone a ‘sea change’ and have moved to a small coastal village, where we enjoy embracing the coastal lifestyle and even bought the ‘dream’ fishing boat.

Spending time with my family is important to me, and the addition of grand children recently has been a wonderful rewarding experience.
