Book Keeper

I’m a mum of six and “ma-ma” to one. I moved to this piece of paradise on earth 10 years ago from “sunny” Victoria and fell in love with the atmosphere and lifestyle the Gold Coast offers.

I love to have a chat and a laugh (and maybe a little wine but I’ll settle for coffee at work!) so working in this client focused industry is ideal.


My life has given me years of experience maintaining records, timetables and budgeting, not to mention being a multi-tasker extraordinaire! I was arts oriented most of my life but have discovered a real enjoyment for bookkeeping and a passion for being mentored in all things business and financial by Steve. Over the last 4 years I have been involved with business building and rehabilitation and I enjoy working closely with our current clients.
