Debra Williams

School Secretary

I moved to Doha in September 2016 with my husband and young son, who is a student at Compass International School Gharaffa campus.

I hail from North Auckland, New Zealand. After graduating with a Bachelor of Business in 1996, I decided to leave NZ and explore the rest of the world “for a couple of years”.  Over 20 years later, I am still exploring! I have enjoyed living and working in various marketing, administration and assistant teaching roles in Auckland, London, Hong Kong, New York, Perth (Western Australia) and Abu Dhabi.

I always try to start my day with a smile. My favourite quote is “Make your smile change the world and don’t let the world change your smile.”
