Bookkeeper (and chief data file fixer)

Skills/ Years of Experience – I started off as a Receptionist 11 years ago doing basic Accounts Payable and Receivable in MYOB. As my time went on I became the Payroll Officer and also hand a hand In purchasing. Early 2015 I decided to do my certificate in Bookkeeping to broaden my horizons and to get formal qualifications in some of the areas I was already working in. We relocated to Country Victoria in early 2016 and it enabled me to expand my skills into Xero (which I am now certified in), QBO (also certified in) in conjunction with my MYOB certificate I obtained in my course

Favourite things – I love my 2 kids (aged 2 & 5), Netball, Shopping, Water-skiing, F1 Racing, Swimming and a good comedy!

Why I love numbers – I loved to be organised and bookkeeping allows me to organise other peoples finances. I have a pretty strict household budget so I like to bring some of my working skills into my personal life!

Something quirky – I hate Seafood and Pork but love Desserts!
