Debbie Degener, CPA – Managing Partner
Debbie began her accounting career after receiving a post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting from Portland State University. She joined Irvine & Company in 1990 and became a partner in 2001.
Aside from her normal workload of accounting, tax and business advisory services, she is responsible for overseeing all administrative functions for the firm. With a degree in recreation management and experience as an Outward Bound leader, Debbie has a natural ability to lead others. Debbie advises the staff in programs such as the ORCPA student-mentoring program in an effort to ensure that team members are continually learning and progressing to standards even higher than those required for the profession.
Debbie enjoys traveling and is an avid supporter of any and all outside events participated in by the firm, such as ¡Salud! and the Portland Indie Wine & Food Festival.
