Meet the Team
I came to New Zealand from South Africa in 1997 and settled in Auckland where I worked for a number of well-known companies in various roles including procurement and stock control.
In 2007 I went to Australia for a year and that stretched to five years. I looked after a variety of clients using MYOB and Quickbooks and assisted with Tax Office compliance. I returned to New Zealand and have been with Office Angels since 2012. I am certified with Xero and proficient with a number of other packages such as Infusion, MYOB, Reckon, iPayroll, Ace and IMS.
I love good food, good wine, and good company. I have travelled to various places and would someday like to do more. I have two children and two grandchildren and they are the light of my life. I enjoy bush walks but my favourite pastime is reading.
I have a very strong customer service focus and enjoy applying my varied experience in new roles and helping clients get the most out of their business. I learn something new every day and this is something I treasure.
I am married with two teenagers and have lived in Tauranga for most of my life. I have worked in the accountancy and administration sector most of my working life, including two years working in Australia and two years working in London while on my OE.
I completed a Bachelor of Management Degree majoring in Accounting through the University of Waikato in 2012 and have been the Accountant for Office Angels since April 2013 – and I love it!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading a good book and spending time on the water in my kayak.
I have a strong background in banking, but in recent years I have jointly owned a successful postal business. This was a great personal experience as it developed my interpersonal skills. After the sale of the business I continued to work as an administration manager before joining Office Angels in 2007. I am experienced in running accounting software packages, accounts payable, accounts receivable, monthly reporting and payroll. I am experienced in both profit and not for profit organisations.
I like to see a job well done and I believe that the office is the engine room of a business. I really enjoy working with my clients and I like to see them succeed in their business and get value from our service.
I am married with two terrific sons. In my spare time I can often be seen wearing Lycra and riding my road bike. I have participated in the Lake Taupo challenge four times and recently I finished the 100km Flyer from Rotorua to Taupo. For me, nothing compares to rising to a challenge, that is outside my comfort zone.
I have spent many years working in a wide range of administration and accounting roles, with a particular emphasis on civil works, construction and transport businesses. I was involved with the rebuild of Christchurch, working remotely from Tauranga processing the accounts for a major construction firm that was involved with rebuilding residential and commercial properties as well as new builds.
I have also worked in a wide variety of other businesses, including marina, café, health store, dental practice, contractors and many more.
My range of skills covers accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, reconciliations, cash flows, and monthly reporting. I am proficient in a number of accounting packages including Reckon, MYOB, Xero, Accredo as well as the Microsoft suite.
In my free time my husband and I like to travel in our motorhome. As an amateur photographer, I enjoy travelling the coastline around New Zealand soaking up the beauty that is on offer.
I am very excited to be a part of the Office Angels team and look forward to helping support businesses through freeing up the business owner’s time, so they can focus more time on what they are good at.
