Debby Palti has been a passionate supporter of the Carlton Football Club since first seeing the game when she arrived in Australia from England. She is a proud and passionate member of the club she has supported since then.
In her professional career, Debby is a Human Resources Manager with her family company that is a leader in its field and distributes both nationally and internationally. She has always loved to write and began her own sports blog called Sportz. The blog is mainly about Carlton, but Debby also writes about other issues in the footy world.
She is a staunch supporter of the AFLW and grass-roots footy as well as the AFL. When her third child finished school, Debby went back to university and completed a Bachelor of Arts (Majoring in History and Creative Writing) Hons, and completed her Masters in Creative Writing, Editing and Publishing. She is now working on a historical piece of fiction and hasn’t ruled out returning to study.
Debby is passionate about inclusivity and proud to support the Racism It Stops With Me campaign, as well as lessening the reliance of clubs on gambling websites, apps and advertising. She is also a proud supporter of the LGBTQI community. Debby believes that supporters, who are the game’s major stakeholder, should be heard more and given a voice.
