Debbie completed a German and Spanish degree at The Northumbria University before joining Hereward Phillips Chartered Accountants in North London. She qualified as a Chartered Accountant and subsequently moved on to work for Kodak, as an International Internal Auditor. The four years spent auditing processes at Kodak sites around Europe and Africa gave Debbie the chance to use her languages and accounting qualifications. She then worked in Kodak's Digital Imaging business as European Finance Manager.
