OUR TEAM

Kathleen Law

Bookkeeper

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. There are continual changes within the tax system and accounting systems so I need to constantly keep up to date which I find rewarding and fulfilling; this is of benefit to both my clients and my continued professional development.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
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.

What is it like being part of the Rad Bookkeeping team?
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.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy socialising and spending time with my family, being outdoors, taking my dog for walks and camping trips.

Sandi Donehue

Bookkeeper

Why did you choose bookkeeping for a career?
I chose bookkeeping because I enjoy working with numbers and helping clients run their businesses more smoothly. I also like the flexibility it offers with Cloud accounting so I can even work and stay on top of things while overseas.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the satisfaction of getting figures to balance and the variety of clients we cater for. Bookkeeping today is always progressing with new apps and programs so it’s always a continuous learning process which appeals to me.

What is it like being part of the Rad Bookkeeping team?
I love it here. Being relatively new, Debbie, Kylie and my co-workers are always helpful and encouraging. The vibe is very professional, but in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere. I think this is why so many clients choose to work with us.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
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.

Kylie Marshall

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.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love reading, studying, genealogy, conservation, camping and being surrounded by family.
