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 keeps the firm moving forward as the managing partner. With a degree in recreation management and experience as an Outward Bound leader, Debbie has a natural ability to lead others. Debbie works hard to ensure that team members are continually learning and progressing to standards even higher than those required for the profession. In addition to her extensive work with wineries and vineyards, Debbie has been a pioneer with the craft distilling industry. As the industry has grown, so has Irvine & Company’s distillery practice thanks to Debbie.
Debbie enjoys traveling, adventuring, and spending time outdoors. More recently, she and her husband hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, tried some hot air ballooning, and survived the heat wave in Paris.
