Xero Bookkeeper and Virtual CFO
With a passion for business and a head for numbers, I launched Modern Bookkeeping and Profit Improving on the back of 25 years of consulting and management experience in Melbourne and the UK. This includes owning a stake in my father’s million-dollar logistics software company – Transit Computer Systems – which I managed for over 10 years.
My Masters of Economics and PostGrad Diploma of Management are key to my bookkeeping and profit improving services; while my business achievements and professional experience enable me to stand out from my peers.
My time at Transit included hands-on responsibility for sales, marketing, finance, consulting, customer service, project management, HR and admin; and overall responsibility of the software development process.
This experience gives me in-depth knowledge of how hard it can be. I know the challenges facing small and medium businesses. I know first-hand about cash flow, profit and loss, payroll, tax obligations and more. And I understand how important it is to keep the sensitive financial information confidential.
As a parent, I am passionate about helping my local community. As such I’ve been an active member of both the parent association and school council of my kids’ schools, including being the President of the Lorne Parent Association for many years. I was also an executive of the Committee for Lorne, the Chair of its Affordable Housing Sub-committee, and I set-up the local Toy Library.
This commitment to community extends to my business. I truly care about each of my clients and see their success as my success. I’m proud that this dedication to customer service was recognised by the “Supplier of the Year” Award that my team and I won from the Australian Freight Industry during my time at Transit.
Like all bookkeepers, I am extremely organised and efficient, and my attention to detail is second-to-none. I also have a strong work ethic – I am very responsive, have high standards, and I am committed to doing what I say I’ll do, when I say I’ll do it. I also love taking a proactive approach to making improvements and solving problems, and my clients benefit from my process driven approach to their business.
As the driving force behind Modern Bookkeeping and Profit Improving, I strive to always deliver the best customer experience possible and look forward to helping your business get fit and stay well.
