I worked at both the Bank of New Zealand and Westpac Bank for several years in addition to raising a family and helping my husband with the book work for his building business. When my children were older, I decided to do some accounting papers at NMIT and a few years later I had my Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Accounting. I was also won the Fletcher Challenge Award for Excellence in 2008
After doing book work for the Nelson Multiple Sclerosis Society for many years as well as our own businesses I decided to start my own business offering my services to other people.
I am an experienced book keeper with 10+ years of experience in a wide range of industries. I have worked in the past for both private and international accounting firms, including WHK/Crowe Horwath in Australia.
I am studying my Bachelor of Business (majoring in Accounting) through the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand and have my certificate 4 in Accounting. Completing my degree at home has given me the flexibility to not only study, but gain hands-on experience.
I have great attention to detail and am eager to not only meet clients' needs, but to exceed their expectations.
