So how did I get into bookkeeping in Perth?
My husband started his own stormwater drainage business in
So while I was working full-time as a Research Scientist at UWA and completing my PhD, I decided to help him succeed even more in his business. I quickly took over all his admin tasks, built a website and engaged it with social media channels. I really loved seeing the business grow.

Bookkeeping was just part of the workflow, but as a
A busy time in my life
Meanwhile, I completed my PhD in 2012, published a number of papers, presented at conferences around the world, received a number of awards and had received funding to complete my own research as a Post-doctoral research Scientist at UWA, in the area of anti-bacterial resistance. While I loved my job, I found the hours restricting and limiting. I was drawn to helping people in business, and being in a lab for hours a day kept me away from this. Plus, the long hours and commute was particularly difficult to manage with a young family. So after the birth of my second child in 2013, I decided to take a break, and spent this time helping my husband grow his business, which is when my passion for helping small businesses really began to thrive.
I quickly found I was in demand with friends and family, and was sub-contracted to work for Taxation Management Services. This enabled me to build up the experience required to get my BAS agent licence and start my own business in 2018. My drive is to help small business owners achieve their vision, to grow their businesses and succeed. Having grown 2 small businesses myself, I know the stress and hardship involved, and I know I have the tools to help. I love being part of a small business, because to me there is nothing more inspiring than literally being part of helping fulfil someone’s dream, passion and vision.

Grasp opportunities when they come your way
What I hope to impart to others is that while it’s important to have faith in your path in life. It’s also wise to stay open to opportunities even when they are unexpected. Not everything can be planned!
I hope this has given you a behind-the-scenes view into what my life looks like as a bookkeeper, and how I got here!
