"Family. Your most important business"

I love numbers and talking. I combine these super powers when I work with business owners to make sure they only pay the tax they need to and keep more of their hard earned cash. Don't accept your tax situation - making changes can massively benefit both you and your business.

Passionate, loyal and friendly

My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

I want to join a great community of like-minded women who lift each other up to achieve more for themselves, their families and their communities.

What's been the biggest pinch-me moment of your career?

I worked for a all female Accounting Practice which was brilliant for 3 years but there were massive changes when a male 2IC from a Big 4 was employed. The client centered focus changed overnight to dollar focused - we were very profitable to begin with. I decided to open my own Accounting Practice after the service level at that employer was reduced and fee level increased. My values no longer aligned and I was not able to support my clients. People need help with their finances and want to be able to reach their accountant and get support when they need it. I plan to keep my Accounting practice boutique and provide Proactive service to make sure clients get exceptional service levels.

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

Sometimes I have a cry, most times I have a chocolate fix and I always have a cup of tea. Then I take a deep breath, remember I help people for a living and love my family. I remember that everything is fixable and move on with my day.

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Everything is fixable.

Which women inspire you and why?

Mia Freedman - incredible business woman helping others lift up. Her reinvention over the last period has been impressive to watch. My mother - a 'house-flipper' before her time who build a family fortune and gave her children a level of education she herself didn't get. Always puts her family first.

What's been the biggest challenge you have faced and how did it help shape who you are today?

When I opened my own business I realized it's a completely different experience than employment - sounds basic but I mean there is so much to organise, particularly at Start Up stage. There are so many skills we need as self-employed business people. I was missing marketing skills, so needed to educate myself and then find professionals who I felt comfortable with as my firm grew. I wasted a lot of money but finally landed in a great space.

What are you really good at? (We know this one's hard, you guys! As women, we tend to talk about what everyone else is good at. But now it's your turn.)

I'm great at numbers, communication and organisation.

What makes you happy?

My family, friends and dogs (all dogs! I'm that crazy person all dogs come to - they know their people...)

What's your definition of success, and how will you know when you've got there? (Go on, aim high!)

My definition of success is having the ability to make choices and getting to choose outcomes you want for yourself and your family. When you are forced into actions that don't work for your situation, that is hard to cope with. I will be successful when I can take the time with my family I want to and also when I have the level of financial freedom that allows me to live comfortably.
