- About Us
Founder, Tax Agent, Accountant
An accountant, but not as you know it! With a lifelong love of numbers, Stacey brings over 22 years of experience in the industry to you and your business. Taking the jargon out of complex financial information, she speaks in “small business” and specialises in taking on all the functions of finance, accounting, training and tax for you.
A non-stop learner and embracer of new technology, Stacey, smashes the traditional stuffy accountant stereotype. She road tests all the new tech, apps and programs, so you don’t have to, and because she loves it. A true innovator, she will streamline processes and be your trusted and invaluable skipper, guiding you towards setting and reaching your financial goals.
When she’s not cheerleading for your business, Stacey is on the sidelines cheering on her sons in whatever favourite sport they are playing, watching her beloved Hawthorn in the AFL (don’t hold that against her) or heading to her local hot gym to sweat out her chocolate addiction.
All round ATO Ninja
Kylie has been managing the Healthy Business Finances office and keeping Stacey and the team sane since February 2020. This administration guru has the inside track on all things ATO, and has superpowers in compliance, lodgements, and payment plans.
All the ducks relating to documents, presentations and processes, are well and truly in a row as a result of Kylie’s superior organising skills. She is also the road tester for any apps and tech that Stacey wants to investigate, determining suitability and usability for client needs and HBF.
Kylie, a mother and a country girl, loves living and spending time on her Maffra property with her family and two dogs.
Soon to be accountant
Tamara comes to Healthy Business finances with an expansive range of transferable skills, qualifications and experience across varied industries. She has worked as a Travel Agent and as a Cabin Crew Supervisor and holds a Diploma of Human Resources Management and a Certificate IV in Accounting & Bookkeeping just to name a few.
It was her love of numbers and organisation that drew her to bookkeeping, and ultimately to accountancy. Tamara is currently completing a Diploma of Accounting. Being this busy calls for elite time management skills – she has these in spades! Specialising in clients in the construction and professional services industries, Tamara has credentials in Xero, Quickbooks Online and Keypay.
Weekends are a time for flexing her green thumb and relaxing in her well-tended garden with her 2 daughters. This Perth born girl loves the warmer weather and lives sustainably through her enjoyment of sewing and growing her own food. She is also dreaming of her next holiday where a pina colada and a hammock play leading roles.
Sunshine state warrior
Queensland-based, Melissa, turned lemons into lemonade by pivoting during the pandemic. Made redundant from her corporate gig in travel she took the opportunity to add to her skillset studying for a bookkeeping certificate. This was initially to keep her partner’s building/construction business in line, and she has also now taken up the opportunity in a position at Healthy Business Finances.
Melissa has resilience and problem-solving skills. She loves to balance the books and gets satisfaction from working out those niggly problems when they don’t. That 2c rounding…she will find it and fix it.
A lover of reality TV (come on admit it, aren’t we all?) and turtlenecks (yes, in Queensland), she enjoys a glass of good wine, more than the odd square of chocolate, and early morning runs/gym session (to balance the wine and choccy). She’s a big fan of live music and gets to venues when she can, and super happy that touring is now back on the agenda for a lot of artists.
Big apple marketing intern
Coming to Healthy Business Finances as a result of a career change, Siona is a recent graduate of RMIT with a qualification in Digital Marketing. Her career history entails operation and customer engagement roles and spans diverse industries involving the public sector, small business and large listed companies.
Siona is contributing to all things marketing and is currently taking remote working to the extreme, as she is living temporarily in New York. Sounds pretty exciting, well it is, but she does miss her 2 fur babies at home in Melbourne.
Passionate about sustainable fashion and a lover of vintage clothing, you will find her blissfully happy in the aisle of an op shop or scouring a second-hand market for bargains. Also a Hawthorn tragic like the boss, her footy tipping is in complete shambles this season.
Beach loving numbers whizz
Kerianne brings her attention to detail and problem solving skills to the excellent work she is doing for our wonderful clients. She’s been employed in many different roles and industries before she realised her passion for numbers and as a non stop learner, she knows that all her previous experience gives her the expertise to succeed with HBF.
Based in Queensland, Kerianne is a determined student studying for her Cert IV in Bookkeeping – all while juggling being a busy mum to two children. It’s a lot to handle, but she’s managing it like a pro.
Although Kerianne calls Queensland home, she dreams of traveling to the Swiss Alps someday. The dedication she has for early morning workouts will pay off when she’s climbing those mountains. When she’s not busy with her studies, having dance parties with her kids, or working out, you can usually find her enjoying the sun at one of the sunshine state’s beautiful beaches.
