Why did you choose bookkeeping for a career?
I enjoy helping people and by doing so by letting the business owners focus on growing their business.

Each day offers a new challenge which is satisfying; I enjoy all aspects in my job from building strong relationships with my clients to reconciling and data entry. When everything balances I love that feeling of accomplishment.

The team is always happy to help each other out and we have a string knowledge base. When I first started with Rad Bookkeeping I felt welcome straight away; being part of a friendly Rad team is rewarding.

I love staying physically active; everything from tennis to boxing to Bikram yoga. But I’m also a bit of a foodie and love exploring new cafes and restaurants all over Melbourne especially on the Mornington Peninsula.

Payroll Administrator

Why did you choose bookkeeping for a career?
I chose bookkeeping as a career because a friend gave me an opportunity in her office and I found a career that I enjoy.  Debbie’s mentoring over the years has seen me start off as receptionist and move through the office in different roles to now being Payroll Administrator

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the diversity of the job and all the challenges. I love the relationships I have formed with clients over the years and I get a real buzz out of watching their businesses grow; I love their enthusiasm when they achieve goals they only dreamed of.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my own professional growth going from the receptionist to payroll administrator under Debbie’s wing and guidance. I particularly love that Debbie has been willing to send me on courses and turn what was a job into a career.

What is it like being part of the Rad Bookkeeping team?
Being part of the Rad team is like having an extension of your family, brothers and sisters I never had; it’s like a home away from home.
