Deborah Marshall migrated to Australia in 1988 after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in the UK. After eight years in public practice, she had time out to raise her family and at that time decided to establish her own small tax practice and is a registered tax agent. Ms Marshall specialises in small to medium size businesses. Since 1996, the Marshall family have been attending Floreat Uniting Church. Ms Marshall has been the congregation treasurer and was active in the establishment of the “Creative Living Centre” (“CLC”) which runs outreach programmes, mainly with an Indigenous community in the Kimberley and students at the Ottow Giessler University in West Papua. Recently the CLC board sought, and were granted, deductible gift recipient status. Deborah joined the board of UnitingCare Crossroads as treasurer. With the transition of the Crossroads Services to UnitingCare West, there was the opportunity for Ms Marshall to continue an involvement in the wider service and mission of the Church. A strong commitment to a community based on equality of opportunity is a driving force behind her involvement in various local groups.
