Deborah graduated from Bristol University in 1974 with a degree in Biochemistry and then qualified as a chartered accountant in 1977, training with Dearden Farrow in London. She was an audit supervisor with them until 1981 when she took a career break to have children.
Once the children were at school she decided that working locally would combine better with family life and started work at Roger Lugg & Co in 1989. She started at the Caterham office but quickly moved to the Lingfield as the manager of their office there. She is still here over 26 years later so, as a firm, we must be doing something right – especially as her daughter, Sue, also works for them and has been at their Caterham office for over 13 years.
Over the years Roger Lugg has tried his best to ‘open her mind’ to opera – but with limited success. She would still rather listen to Roy Orbison. She enjoys going to the theatre and travelling. Sue has now given birth to her first grandchild and she is greatly enjoying being a grandmother.
